American Space Museum / Space Walk of Fame Foundation

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 2 people are interested
Senior Tour
We have both youth and senior tours, as well as individual visitors who want a docent-led tour.

Do you enjoy meeting people and talking about space history? We need people who have an interest in the space program and/or American history who would like to share their enthusiasm with others.

We have training and a lead docent to prepare you, but we also give you latitude to engage the visitors as you see fit. You must enjoy people, present a professional appearance and love to talk about space!

If you can't work a full day (10-5), we will happily receive even just a few hours of your time! If you previously worked in the space program, that is even better, but not required.

PLEASE DO NOTE REGARDING COVID-19: Our tentative re-opening date is June 1st, and we WILL require safety protocols to be in place for everyone entering the building, including guests. Hours will also be reduced, closing at 4 each day, to allow for extensive evening cleanings in addition to the cleanings happening during the day.

Location:

308 PINE ST, TITUSVILLE, FL 32796, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is two-fold, as our tagline indicates: "Preserving Achievement; Inspiring Innovation." First, we honor those who built the American space program by preserving their artifacts, history and individual stories. Second, we use those stories and artifacts as an educational springboard toward inspiring a new generation to innovate, invent, explore and discover.

Description

We have a 6,000 sq ft facility in downtown Titusville, dedicated to honoring America's space pioneers and displaying their artifacts and achievements. We also offer STEAM Space, a dynamic education program that features almost-weekly programming for grades 3-12, a variety of camps of activities and a Makerspace, which will be opened by the end of 2016. We are also building a one-of-a-kind SALT program, focusing on Strategic thinking, Administration, Leadership and Teamwork.

Our museum is open 6 days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a suggested donation of $10 per adult, $8 for military and seniors, $5 for students 13-18 and FREE for students under 12. Our near-by Space Walk of Fame monuments are available for viewing year-round. We offer docents who worked in the space program and can tell the story of our space history from a personal perspective. We also offer a hands-on experience where visitors can interact with some (not all) of our artifacts...including a mission control console that was used during the Apollo and Shuttle programs, and a NASA program desk from 1964, which offers visitors the chance to dial an old rotary phone and type on a NASA typewriter from the era.
