SCHEDULE A TOUR OF OUR MUSEUM!
Since our main Museum facilities are located in launch complex hangers and blockhouses on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, visiting the museum and the majority of our exhibits is only possible through a scheduled tour.
Many military installations routinely permit entry to active duty military, military retirees, government civilian employees and their dependents with proper identification. This is not the case at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The Cape is a restricted work area and access is permitted only to badged employees and authorized visitors.

And if you are unable to schedule a tour in advance, all visitors are still able to visit our exhibits at the Sands Space History Center, which is right outside the base and open to the public free of charge!Our Exhibits Location & Hours
