Launches

The Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral is visually stunning. Lots of great local information inside & family-friendly. Joscelyn C. - Clermont, FL

If anyone is or knows of someone tying the knot, it would benefit them to check out this place. Not only is it unique and new, but it's gorgeous inside, the staff is friendly and phenomenal, and it's just plain beautiful! David L. - Titusville, FL

Wonderful & impressive place! Breathtaking space-related photography on display, stunning architecture & art, fun & interactive displays. I live locally but was absolutely amazed with how much I learned about the very special place I get to call home. Great reminder of what makes our community so unique. Can't say enough positive things! Allison B. - Rockledge, FL

Rocket Launch Viewings

 

WATCH A ROCKET LAUNCH

A never before seen panoramic view of not only Port Canaveral and our cruise ships, but of Kennedy Space Center. Our 7th-floor outdoor observation deck is the place to be, to watch a rocket launch! Seven stories above the ground, on an open promenade you and your guests can see a launch like no other location in Port Canaveral. Stargazing and astronomy enthusiasts will want to stick around for the best view in town. This is the place to be for space exploration!
