Visitor Info

The volunteer docents of the U.S. Air Force Space & Missile Museum have produced an extensive web site that provides a comprehensive look at the facilities and history of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.


Air Force Sands Space History Center
The Sands Space History Center, an extension of the museum, is located just outside the south gate of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. It is immediately behind the offices of Space Florida and the SpaceX Launch Control Center. Admission is free. No Cape access pass is required. The Sands Space History Center contains historic information and displays for each Launch Complex at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

A gift shop and rest rooms are available inside the building. A shaded picnic area is just outside the History Center door, so bring your lunch and enjoy the afternoon. Cold drinks are available for purchase inside.

Hours of operation:

Tuesday-Friday 9AM-2PM
Saturday 9AM-5PM
Sunday Noon-4PM
Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day
