Daily Admission to KSC is $50/adult, $40/child age 3–11, $46/U.S. military and seniors 55+. $75/$60 buys a Multiday Ticket good for a year of admission (among other benefits). There are also two categories of Annual Pass with even more benefits. Discounted tickets are also available to military reservists, retirees, and active duty personnel through their MWR/ITT Travel office. KSC Up-Close Tours bring you into areas omitted from the regular tour for an extra $25/$19.  Choose from tours of the Vehicle Assembly Building, Launch Control Center, or a Then & Now tour. The tours last about three hours, and they’re well worth it! Also available on most days is a chance to Lunch With an Astronaut. These meals add $30/adult, $16/child age 3–11 to the price of admission. Fly With An Astronaut is a new program where visitors spend a half-day touring the Visitor Complex in the company of a NASA astronaut. The $199/$174 ticket includes all-day admission to the Visitor Complex.

Another program is the Astronaut Training Experience (ATX), an in-depth, immersion program that includes motion simulators, exclusive tours, firsthand experiences with veteran NASA astronauts, gear, and lunch. The ATX Core program is a half-day adventure for guests 14 and older—cost is $145. The ATX Family program is a half-day adventure for ages 7 and up—cost is $145 per participant. $30 adds general admission to the Visitor Complex. Guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Some simulators have height/weight restrictions. Reservations required—reserve online or call 866-737-5235.

While the shuttle program has ended, the shuttle Atlantis went on permanent exhibit here in July 2013, and unmanned launches continue. For launch viewing info, visit https://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/events.
