Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of launches with the purchase of admission and a launch transportation/viewing ticket. Availability of viewing opportunities and locations is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval.
If launch transportation and viewing opportunities are offered, tickets become available for purchase as soon as possible before the launch date and may be purchased online. The VIP Launch Viewing tab will list the tickets if or when they are available. You must purchase a daily admission ticket or an annual pass in order to use launch transportation/viewing tickets as viewing locations are accessible from inside the visitor complex entrance only. Ticket holders are transported by bus from the main visitor complex to special viewing areas if available.
