We discovered a little known gem today on the edge of Cape Canaveral. This museum goes through all the different launch complexes that have been used over the years by the space team. Each complex lists the shuttles that were launched from there, important dates and events at each complex, and pictures of the people that made history. It was such an incredible tribute to the people who have dared enough to make space within reach.
Things to know if you go:
- the museum is out of the way and set back from the main road so be sure to have a good navigation system
- It is located right before the main entrance of the air force base- if you go into the base then you’ve gone too far
- It is open to the public and is free
- The person at the front desk will give you a great overview which will help to better understand what you are seeing
