My family of four (including 2 teens) visited on a busy day. Once inside, we did the bus tour first, which is highly recommended as it was a guided tour that took us past some of the launch pads, vehicle assembly building and as a bonus, we saw an alligator & a Bald Eagle. We did the shuttle simulator which was a little disappointing. There is so much to see and read, it is difficult to cover it all. As the Imax shows are over so early in the day, we missed viewing them which was very unfortunate and disappointing. We were there for 7 hours and didn't see everything. Having to stand in line for over an hour for the bus tour didn't help. I felt the bus tour lineups could have been designed a little better to accomodate the Easter Break crowds.
All in all a good day and great experience, however was a little disappointed missing out on the Imax films due to the early closure.

Canaveral National Seashore

Reviewed By Zephyr_Travel - Fredericksburg, Virginia

The visitor center is a few miles out from the north side entrance, access sites for the sounds and beach side are spread out, limited parking. Further south you will find a trail and old house exhibit the Eldora Statehouse. The historic house closes an hour ealier than the visitor center. Also to visit, the Turtle Mound National Historic Site was a hightlight and is on the north side before the visitor center. Great views of ocean and sound.
If you go to the south side entrance, you can drive to the manatee and drawbridge viewing area. If the temperature is higher than 70 degrees, it is more likely you could see the manatees.

I took my father and grandfather, both connected to aviation, to this museum (Senior citizens and military receive admission discounts). They had a really enjoyable time.

I highly recommend utilizing the free tour guide service to show you around. They provide so much more detail, stories, and insight than just the display plaques. And they can answer questions, too. They all have aviation experience. Our tour guide was great. He even asked for my father's insight and experience.

We were at this museum on one of the days the Ford Tri-motor was visiting so we got to watch it take off and land several times, along with several other small planes. The museum is located on an active runway.

The planes were from various years and there were some pretty remarkable ones too. My favorite? One of the planes used in the movie The Great Escape!

All of the planes have been restored and we got to walk through the hanger where they were actively restoring planes.

Even the gift shop was great. The ladies working there were very helpful and friendly.

Aside from the planes, there is a neat museum dedicated to aviation history and has lots of WWII memorabilia.

I highly recommend visiting this museum.

Very clean, very well-maintained, excellent playhouse. The seats are comfortable and the house is small enough that every seat is a good seat. It would be nice if they offered snacks at intermission, but drinks are available. And, the performance (Shrek) was very well done.

We went there to celebrate a birthday. They actually had a special beer "birthday cake" which had icing and sprinkles around the rim of the glass. Had a great time. It is a little pricey, but if you enjoy trying out new craft beers you...MoreThank you so much for celebrating with us! We're glad you had a great time and got to try Birthday Cake!
