According to a release, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will be expanding the availability of attractions to guests on Monday, July 6, opening Shuttle Launch Experience, the IMAX Theater, pre-shows for Space Shuttle Atlantis, and Heroes & Legends featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame presented by Boeing, as well as expanded dining options.
All areas and attractions will have a limited capacity and the visitor complex will continue to operate with reduced hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The visitor complex cautiously reopened on May 28, 2020, with a reduced admission price and attractions limited to walk-through exhibits and outdoor sites only.
As always, the health and safety of employees and guests is the highest priority for the space center.
Per the CDC guidelines, the visitor complex will continue with precautionary measures, including limited attendance and encouraging advance daily admission purchases, requiring face coverings, temperature screening for employees and guests, accommodating social distancing queues, restaurants, show viewing areas, and other facilities throughout the complex, and implementing increased frequency of sanitization and disinfection.
Officials at the space center will continue to assess the situation and make adjustments to the availability of exhibits, tours, and experiences as deemed safe and appropriate. The Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour including the Apollo/Saturn V Center and Special Interest Bus Tours remain unavailable at this time.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will continue to take action to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus based on the guidance of the CDC. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.
These precautions are temporary and are subject to change at any time based on the recommendations of the CDC, State of Florida, and Brevard County. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex management continues to work closely with local, state, and federal experts to ensure that we are up to date on the situation as it evolves.
