Top 10 Museums for Kids
John F. Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, FL
Why play astronaut at nearby Walt Disney World when you can meet a real one at NASA's launch headquarters in Cape Canaveral, where daily astronaut-hosted lunches are part of the appeal? Indeed, the Kennedy Space Center has witnessed some of mankind’s most spectacular technological achievements, and while the full astronomical scope might be lost on the little ones (and even on the "big" ones), exploring a full-size replica of the Explorer space shuttle and touching a moon rock are sure to provide kids with an experience that’s truly out of this world. Even though the space shuttle program has been retired, if your timing’s right at this top museum for kids, you might still get to watch a live launch or a rocket – the next scheduled launch here is set for October 25, 2012.
