The Air Force Space and Missile Museum located at Complex 26, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, has introduced millions of visitors to Florida's Space Coast and the history of rocketry and Space flight since 1966. The museum at Launch Complex 26 is accessible to the general public from a bus tour called "Cape Canaveral: Then and Now" that originates from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The 2.5-hour tour includes a tour of the museum and stops at several historic sites on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The tour runs seven days a week, launch schedule permitting. There is a fee for the tour.
**Due to operational constraints, the Cape Canaveral: Then & Now Tour is not available at this time. We look forward to offering the tour once it can be made available** However, the History Center located just outside Cape Canaveral Air Force Station remains OPEN.
In 2010 the Air Force Space and Missile Museum Foundation opened a History Center located outside the secured areas of the Air Force Station to make Florida's Space Coast's incredible history available to everyone FREE of charge. Visiting the History Center will take you through six decades of space history & exploration from winged missiles to the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo Programs to today’s powerful Delta, Atlas and Falcon 9 rockets. Docents are all volunteers most of which have worked at the Cape on one or many launch vehicles/complexes and will be delighted to tell you all about their personal experiences. While here please stop by the gift shop for a unique gift to take back home.
