Sadly the ONLY way to see this gem is via the early space tour of Cape Canaveral from Kennedy Space Center since it is on Air Force property. The tour consists of many stops, this being just one of them. However, in my opinion, they...More

Yes. It was free but they do ask for a donation. It is separate from the space center which is not open for the general public. Have to drive north to the NASA visitors center for public tours.
