Rocket Garden at Kennedy Space Center

If you are in Florida, you should visit Kennedy Space Center before heading home. I guarantee that you will enjoy it. The Rocket Garden is one of my favorite attractions to visit. If you come early, a whole day is all you need to check out every attractions of KSC.

The rockets in the Rocket Garden are: Mercury-Redstone, Thor, Mercury-Atlas, Gemini-Titan II, and Saturn IB. The rocket garden is located in the Visitor Complex area. This is an outdoor display of the historic rockets that put Americans and satellites in space.

Just an added trivia, Juno II launched the first American probe to escape Earth's gravity and fly past the Moon.

While Thor-Delta was one of the most reliable and frequently-used launch vehicles.

If you are here in the Rocket Garden, you will also see the capsules from the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs. You will be amazed to experience of walking on the walkway and be in the white room that Apollo astronauts used to access their capsules from the launch tower of LC-39A.

I will suggest that you should avail the free guided tour in the garden to get the story behind those rockets.

See the rocket below? That is saturn IB and as you can see it, it is mounted on its side.

That's my husband and we just came from the Apollo Command Module or the White Room.

Here's a closer look of the base of the rockets.

  1. Hi Amy,
    It's a long while since I've been here! Old pa yun blog ko, but it still exists. I have a new one so I thought of sharing it with old online friends.

    As for that Rocket Garden, my kids would love to see them esp my boy. He loves rockets and airplanes.
