They have a tram ride which covers the whole Space Centre campus, taking you to various departments of Space Research + Development. You visit the famous “Saturn V” – the largest rocket ever built by NASA – as well as the facility where they are experimenting with agriculture in space. You visit the classrooms + mock-up training facility for astronauts as well as a memorial garden for astronauts lost on missions.
