-- The SALT program is an exciting, proprietary program that is currently under development. SALT stands for Strategic thinking, Administration, Leadership and Teamwork. Too many young people today lack skill and understanding in these areas. Schools, businesses and organizations are looking for young people who understand how to lead, how to work as a team, how to plan and execute, and how to problem solve. Get more information here.
The ASTRO KIDS book series, funded in part by the PNC BANK FOUNDATION will soon be unveiled by the Museum. Each book in the series will be tied to a specific STEAM and/or SALT theme. Get more information here.

STARRY, STARRY ASTRONOMY NIGHT AT THE AMERICAN SPACE MUSEUM
Have you ever seen Saturn's rings or craters on the Moon? Well here's your chance! Join us Tuesday, Sept. 26th, from 7-9 pm at the rocket garden parking lot of the American Space Museum on the corner of Hopkins Avenue south and Pine Street in downtown Titusville for the monthly program, "Starry, Starry Astronomy Night."
The free event will begin inside the museum with a short talk and incredible images of Saturn from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, and go outside in the twilight to look through telescopes and see those incredible rings for yourself. And the nearby waxing Moon will knock your socks off with craters, mountain ranges and Apollo landing sites. Join us for some urban stargazing—you won't forget it! (If cloudy, we will have a program on Saturn and Autumn constellations).
It's what's been happening across the Lagoon.
Have you ever wanted to be up close and personal to the behind the scenes action of an actual launch? See what it's like in the U.S Space Walk of Fame's Pad 36A Launch control Room. We have the actual working consoles used to send satellites into orbit! Audio tapes of the actual launches help you experience the liftoff of giant rockets. Space suites, flight manuals, flown-in-space gear, ground support equipment, to-scale rocket models a Kennedy Space Center Shuttle Launch pad and crawler model with lots of personal memorabilia donated by former space workers fills out this one of a kind space exhibit venue.
And, these are our neighbors who made it happen!
Veterans of the space program serve as knowledgeable guides providing a first-hand history of the U.S. space program. The museum also has a gift shop providing visitors with a wide variety of space souvenirs. Books, t-shirts, caps, pens and games are among the items for sale.
Admission is $10.00, open Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM and special events, closed major holidays. The Museum is located at 308 Pine Street in Downtown Titusville, Between the Pritchard House and St. Gabriel's Church.
Our Space Walk of Fame Park features monuments to the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Shuttle missions. It is an ideal location to see KSC space launches.
