U.S. Astronaut Hall Of Fame Closed

The U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame (AHOF) is closing to the public Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, in preparation for the new, next-generation attraction Heroes and Legends, featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.

Heroes and Legends is scheduled to open late 2016 and will be located in the previous Early Space Exploration building.

Beginning Nov. 2, AHOF will be called the "ATX Center," as it will continue to be utilized for education programs, including the Astronaut Training Experience (ATX) for individuals and families and both domestic and international Camp KSC.

Founded in 1990, it is 37,500 square feet and is currently overseen by the Mercury Seven and U.S. Space Came foundations.

The Hall of Fame is also home to the largest collection of astronaut personal memorabilia, along with space suits and other artifacts from various space missions.

As a result of closure we will no longer be making a stop here.

IMAX Theatres

Included with general admission to the Kennedy Space Center is admission to two IMAX space films.

The center is home to the only back-to-back twin IMAX theatres in the world that are both 5 1/2 stories tall and feature state-of-the-art sound.

The movies consist of dramatic real-time footages from different missions, especially of the Apollo mission.

The large IMAX screens transport you from your seat to outer space as films feature actual footage from various space missions over the past 50 years.

3D technology allows you to get even closer to the stars, and you're immersed in an otherworldly experience.

Films run throughout the day and snacks and drinks are available in the theater lobby.

It is one of the best tourist attractions in the Kennedy Space Center.

Grayline Tour of Kennedy Space Center Review by Ada Ospina

I’ve always loved space travel and was very excited to get to visit Kennedy Space Center.

In the morning we boarded a coach bus with a fully functional restroom.

There weren’t very many people on the bus so we were able to choose whichever seats we wanted.

With a map and tickets in hand we had a seat and got ready for the ride.

As coach buses can be cooler at times you should think about bringing a sweater or small blanket to keep warm if you chill easily.

You can leave it on the bus during the day.

You also may want to bring a snack for the trip.

The journey to Kennedy was just over an hour long and we got the chance to watch a movie on the way to the space center.

We watched Dolphin Tale, which was a treat for me since I’d never seen the movie.

Once we were at Kennedy the driver got off the bus and enter the park with us.

We were treated to our own special welcome and got to meet and hear from an astronaut.

She freely answered any questions we had about her time in space.

After the meet and greet we proceeded, with the driver (who basically became our guide), to the Atlantis Shuttle exhibit.

Our driver happily took photos for us with our phone and camera outside the building where there is a life-size shuttle.

He did the same for other passengers before entering the building.

As we entered the queue, which has a countdown clock to your lift-off, he bid us farewell and explained that we would see him at 5pm to return to Orlando.

The rest of the day at the center is self-guided, which I prefer because I can decide which exhibits I’d like to see and when.

Once it was time to depart we went back to the bus and were happily greeted by our driver.

On the return trip we got the chance to watch most of Star Trek (a newer film), which I had also not seen before.

My tip to others taking this trip is to ask your driver for any tips he or she has that could avoid wait times and exhibits that you shouldn’t miss.

Thankfully we were at the center on a slower day, when school was not in session.

Overall it was a great day at Kennedy and the bus trip was much better than I’ve experienced in other cities and countries.

The movies were an extra treat.
