About
We are a museum dedicated to the space workers of the Canaveral Spaceport who built the rockets and launch pads that allowed the US to reach the Moon, and send probes to the outer planets. Most of the artifacts in the museum were donated to us by those now retired space workers to tell the stories of what life was really like working there during those times. We work to keep things exciting and personal with the opportunity to talk with people who worked there and to see what is new and coming in the American Space Program.

Hubs and I like to find "off the beaten path" adventures when we vacate. This was one of them! We did the Kennedy Space Center earlier and was itching for more, so we stopped here and are SO glad we did. We got there a little over an hour before closing, and the staff were very accommodating to us, as the full tour takes about 2 hours. Out tour guide, Travis Thompson, really made this experience for us. He is a retired (30+ year) NASA employee who worked in what is called The White Room. Literally, one of the last faces the astronauts see before take-off. His personal experiences and relationships with these astronauts and the program helped to immerse us in the tour and the experience. So many historical artifacts and associated stories. Hubs was enthralled and taken with the experience - he's a major space junkie. I really enjoyed imagining what it all must have been like - working NASA and being an astronaut. I cannot stress how much we enjoyed this museum and would 1000% advise anyone going to Kennedy Space Center or Titusville to check this place out!

Brings back memories when I worked at the Space Center
Sep 2020
I worked at the Space Center for Rockwell and Lockheed during the shuttle Program - first as an electroncs technician then as an Instrumentation Engineer in the Haz-Warning group. Visiting this place brings back a lot of memories for me. i highly recommend visiting this place when you are in Titusville or the surrounding area - worth the visit!!

You might be tempted to skip this if you have gone to the Kennedy Space Center and after you see the unassuming building that houses this museum. That would be a mistake. This is a great supplement to what you see/learn at Kennedy. The exhibits are not flashy and high tech, but the docent tour that we had was exceptional. Our guide was Travis Thompson and he had years of experience working at the space center. He was the one who closed and locked the door to the space shuttle so he had a wealth of first-hand knowledge about the astronauts and the missions. The stories he shared were fascinating. It is an experience you can't have anyplace else. Don't miss it.

I don’t want to say I was drug in kicking and screaming but a museum? on vacation? I was out voted...and I glad I was. The smaller size made this museum more accessible and personalized. Guides are former workers- our guide (Travis) was a great story teller and brought the artifacts to life. Whether proudly pointing out a metal gurney finished in his father’s garage by the very technical method of running it over with his truck or answering the burning question of just how astronauts go to the restroom, this is a great place to further your understanding of the vast team needed for the few to reach space.

We had a nice tour of the museum, Well explained and kept my grandson 11yo busy and interested. Staff was welcoming and they have a nice gift shop. Highly recommend for families who don't have all day to walk around the space center.

We had a guided tour with Travis who worked with NASA. He took us through the museum and gave us the highlights and peppered personal stories throughout. This museum is such a gem! We are a family of six and Kennedy Space center was just too much money but this was so reasonable. Also, my back was hurting from standing up a while and the office manager came over and asked me if I was ok and grabbed a chair for me. If you are taking a trip to Space Coast don't miss this!

The American Space Museum Is Fun For All Ages
Oct 2020
Our family LOVES the American Space Museum. It is not only a cool place to see rare space artifacts but also a great learning experience. It is fun for all ages. Our recent tour host was Travis. He had worked in the White Room during the shuttle program and had met many astronauts. His stories were amazing and I could have listened to him every day.

This museum is affordable for the whole family.

On this trip, I brought my 11 year old daughter and she loved seeing the Women's Gallery. It is very inspiring to show a young girl what is possible with hard work. She also loves the control room where they simulate a launch. That is always the highlight of our tour.

To the entire staff of the American Space Museum. Thank you for all you do. I can't recommend this museum enough.
