Astronaut Hall of Fame

The Astronaut Hall of Fame houses the world's largest collection of astronaut memorabilia, as well as displays, exhibits and tributes dedicated to the heroes of Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. The Exhibit Hall houses an historic collection of spacecrafts, including the Mercury Sigma 7 capsule, a Gemini training capsule, and the Apollo 14 Command Module.

In the "Simulator Station," realistic astronaut training simulators allow guests to feel the pressure of four times the force of gravity, ride a rover across Mars, and land a Space Shuttle.

The Hall of Fame and museum opened in 1990. On Friday, June 20, 2003, at 4:00 p.m. a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to officially re-open the Hall of Fame as a part of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
