Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
Space Shuttle Atlantis℠
Slack-jawed, dumbfounded, speechless. Chances are, this is how you’ll describe yourself as you experience the startling reveal that leaves you just inches from the nose of Space Shuttle Atlantis, the actual spacecraft that safely launched and landed 33 times, traveled 126 million miles and spent 307 days in space. But don’t worry, you won’t be the first or the last to react this way. In fact, the sight of her has been known to make grown men cry.

A don’t-miss attraction for every visitor to Orlando and the Space Coast, Space Shuttle Atlantis℠ brings you face to face and nose to nose, with the awesome power, complexity, capability – and beauty – of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program.

You’ll want to allow several hours to explore this five-story, 90,000 square-foot attraction, not only to stand in awe of Atlantis – whose one-of-a-kind display allows for an almost 360-degree view, including her payload bay and tiled underside – but also to explore more than 60 interactive and immersive simulators and activities that let you experience what it’s like to be an astronaut, and to live and work in the weightlessness of space.

Dedicated areas of the attraction take you deeper into programs made possible by the space shuttle, including the International Space Station, which still operates as a space outpost and laboratory today, and the Hubble Space Telescope, which continues to provide us with hauntingly beautiful images and a wealth of new information about the galaxies beyond our own.
