Canaveral Tours - Cape Canaveral Lighthouse

Canaveral Tours offers booked guests the opportunity to experience the history of Cape Canaveral on a journey of exploration. Your excursion includes visits to the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse and Space Force Missile Museum. Along the way hear, see and stop at historic sites of early settlers, missile programs from the 1950’s, early space exploration and the future of exploring outer space.

The lighthouse and Missile Museum are located on the property of the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. They have limited public access. Canaveral Tours offers an official tour to visit these historic sites. All tours require advanced registration to procure security clearance and an escort for the visit.

Tours are available weekly, requiring a 2-day advance reservation.
