The Sands Space History Center, formerly known as The Air Force Space and Missile History Center, an extension of the museum, is located just outside the south gate of Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
The history center was renamed after Major General Harry J. ‘Bud’ Sands Jr. who originally proposed the creation of a museum at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station dedicated to its space history.
Since the History Center is located just outside of Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, no Cape access pass is required. The History Center contains historic information and displays for each Launch Complex (LC) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. To visit the rest of the USAF Space & Missile Museum, you can schedule a tour and explore our website to learn more about other artifacts and related history.
