Things To Know Before You Come
Tickets are given out, in person at the Visitor Center, on a first come, first served basis, the day of the tour. Tickets and spaces are limited. It is best to arrive early to request tickets, if you would like to visit the underground Launch Control Center. The elevator that takes you 31 feet underground, can hold approximately 6 visitors at a time. For safety and security, we do not allow bags or purses of any size on our tours. Cameras are welcome.
