What people are saying about Orlando

The major exhibits are outstanding and unique. Where else could you see an actual shuttle and grasp the scale of the rockets? The films conveyed a sense of space and the personal stories that shaped our nation's experiences. Room for improvement: 1. More site maps and guiding signs pointing to key locations. 2. A few human guides to help people find an exhibit, help explain what an exhibit is about, point to the end of a particular line (when several intersect) or to advise when a line is too long to get into a particular theater (so that people don't get turned away after standing in line). With many visitors that day, things felt disorganized. 3. More emphasis on NASA's mission, less on shops, eateries and street entertainers. Some places that sold things seemed to be more clearly marked than the exhibits. Also, should a juggler/magician draw a bigger crowd than a space exhibit?

Great experience with grandkids. Ages 16,12 and 9 - They loved it. Son in law said it was the best day of trip - we’d already been to Universal, Magic Kingdom and Epcot - so that’s saying a lot.

Interesting Only downside is the queueing 1 day is not enough atleast late closing times or 2 day pass

Great day just not enough time definitely need a 2day pass

Great stuff! Fun to see a lot of USA space history
