Talking free tickets to Kennedy Space Center

I thought this might be worth posting. We were told to ask our congressman about free tickets to Kennedy Space Center. I emailed his office, they asked us how many adults/kids and what date. I received confirmation that our free tickets are at will-call for the date we will be there.

Our tickets include:

> admission to the grounds, including all exhibits and shows
> bus tour, including observation gantry, international space station center, and apollo saturn V center
> opportunity to see both IMAX movies (I'm not sure what "opportunity" means)
> visit to the astronaut hall of fame
> tickets valid for two days of admission

It was cheaper for us to fly in on a Thursday and stay an extra night in a hotel, instead of flying in Friday for a Saturday cruise. Go figure. So we will be going to Kennedy on our extra day!

Awesome!! Thanks for posting this! I am definately going to give it a try! We are flying in the day before and had thought about going, but could not justify the added expense with everything else, but if the tickets are free--we are there!!!!!
THANKS!!!

Wow! Just wondering if this offer is for all Americans or just ones from certain states?

My sister got some last year from our Congressman (John Shadegg, AZ 3rd district).

She had sent the email quite a few months before our trip and then resent it about 60 days out and got a reply pretty quickly after that.

Illini_fan, I'm betting the staff assistant wasn't aware that they could give you regular admission tickets.

You might be right, I haven't heard back on my follow-up request, so hopefully the staff member is doing some research. I'll give it a couple of days and try again.

It seems that everyone goes through their House member and not their Senate member. Any reason for that?

I think because we were just told to "ask your congressman".

Maybe Senators are just too to deal with their constituents.

Really, probably because your congressman represents a smaller group of people (for most states), and this type of request would just be more easily handled through them.

Tropicana has a buy one get one free offer to KSC in their new points promotion. My family loves OJ so I'm sure we can drink our way through 9 points (x2) so we only need to purchase 2 tickets for admission. Check out the back of your OJ carton.
