A visit to Titusville is not complete without a tour of the museum with its hands-on exhibits and fascinating displays of NASA history
The museum features an impressive collection of artifacts and memorabilia from the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Shuttle programs as well as special exhibits on the Women of Space, unmanned missions, and the future of space exploration. The exhibit halls also feature spacecraft parts, astronaut suits, and mementos of the Soviet space program. A special section of the museum allows visitors to experience the sounds and sensations of an actual countdown and launch from Launch Complex 16 at Cape Canaveral. The museum also contains the original Atlas Centaur launch consoles from launch pad 36A where visitors of all ages can sit in front of active console displays, throw switches, and imagine they are controlling an Atlas launch. The museum streams a daily “Stay Curious” presentation on Facebook Live at 4:00 pm. The 20-30 minute program narrates space history with artifacts from the museum collection, provides the latest launch information from Kennedy Space Center, and presents interviews with former space workers of the Apollo and Shuttle eras. The museum is a must-see attraction, especially for visitors who have come to Titusville to observe a current launch.
