“Future Voyager Month” aims to set kids on the path to tomorrow’s space exploration by giving ages 3-11 free one-day admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex throughout the month of September, 2022.

The offer is available with the purchase of at least one adult admission ticket, and is valid for up to three children’s’ admissions per adult purchase.

Kids, families, and other visitors can be inspired by real flight-flown space hardware such as the Orion EFT-1 capsule in the spaceport of the future, Spaceport KSC, located in the new Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex.

Wonder at the logistics of space travel while viewing the Life Habitat Cut-Away scale model of a habitat designed to hold four-12 crew members during long-duration space missions, and explore the full-scale Lockheed Martin Space Habitat mockup to discover what it would look like as the habitat orbits the moon.

Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex’s Orion EFT-1 capsule will play a key role in NASA’s Artemis missions, and guests can learn more about the project through a scale model of the NASA Space Launch System Rocket that will launch the Artemis 1 mission.

“There’s so much to offer young explorers here at the visitor complex,” said Therrin Protze, COO of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “In addition to our world-class exhibits, interactive experiences, chances to meet a veteran astronaut and more, we offer even more that can’t be taught in a classroom or read in a book. A visit here piques interest, inspires thought, and stokes curiosity, all things that lead to innovation and discovery.”

For a look at the possibilities for their own futures as space explorers, kids and their grown-ups can use the complex’s HoloTube to manipulate a holographic version of the James Webb Space Telescope during their visit to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

Purchase admission tickets using the “Future Voyagers” offer online at KennedySpaceCenter.com. Blackout dates may apply, such as during launch viewings and special events, and the offer cannot be combined with other offers.
