  • Excellent early history of Cape Canaveral rocketry. Enjoyed seeing the rocket engines up close and seeing the reentry heat shields of early rockets.

  • I loved the blockhouse and red stone static display. Please open to the public, I’d love to show my family!

  • So fascinating to see where our space program has been. Truly one of a kind. The docents who interacted with my family were very knowledgeable and passionate.

  • Small but very interesting museum on Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. It's very much worth taking the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Tour to see it. The guided tour from the guide, Gary is very informative.
  • Great visit to the Cape Canaveral Light House. This is located within the secure Space Force Base so prior arrangements must be made to visit.
  • The BEST aircraft museum I've been to. Admission is free, and the place is huge. I need to go back now that the 5th hanger is open. The only aerospace museum I enjoyed more was Kennedy Space Center...but only because, well, rockets ...hard to beat rockets. The Air Force Museum has a very large collection of both civilian and military aircraft, from the first days of flight all the way to stealth and drone tech. You could spend 2-3 days in there if you read and did everything.
  • We were able to visit this through our Kennedy space center tour. It's small, but definitely a great stop. The volunteers that do the tours are full of knowledge and passion. Take cash the small gift shop is a $10 minimum purchase for cards.
  • I’m sure this is a great place and is cool to visit. But it would be great for them to make sure it is known this is on an Air Force base before we arrive and are denied entry by armed guards. Respectfully left, however it would be nice to know.
