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?

I believe these are available to everyone if you contact your local representative/senator. However, I believe they also only alot a certain number of these and they tend to go fast so don't wait to ask if you plan on going early!

I just emailed my representative and told him that we were heading down for spring break and wanted to tour the Kennedy Space Center with the kids. I asked if he had any comp tickets that were available for this. I asked for 7 because we are going with another family. His staffer called back and asked for the name of the other family because they are ony allowed to give 4 tickets per family. She said she would get this taken care of. Of course I looked on the website and emailed my representative directly and made sure I thanked him for the wonderful job he was doing. It must have worked because within a couple of weeks his staffers were calling. I am just patiently waiting my tickets or information. Hope this helps. If at first you are told no, keep explaining what you are wanting. The first time they were try to give me tickets to the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. When I explained what I wanted, the staffer said "I don't think we offer these". I asked nicely if she could check and get back with me. Sure enough it worked.
