What does it cost? Admission, at $50 for the day, is less than getting into a theme park. We ended up extending that to an annual pass by the end of the first day for only another $25. Parking was $10/day for cars and $15/day for RV's.
Next on our agenda was a talk by Rick Searfoss, an actual astronaut. He was well spoken, with an inspirational message about the importance of leadership and teamwork.

Day two we visited "Heroes and Legends," the Astronaut Hall of Fame, and enjoyed the movie "Science on a Sphere". You can have popcorn at 9 AM! All three of us really enjoyed the experiences, and plan to come back on our next trip to Florida. There are several IMAX movies included in the admission price that we didn't see and we might sign-up for one of the extended tours.
