The mission of the American Space Museum is to promote the awareness and understanding of history, science and service through its collections, exhibitions and programming in order to honor our heroes, preserve our history, educate the public and inspire the upcoming generations around us.
The American Space Museum started as U.S. Space Walk of Fame Foundation. Through work and dedication, the foundation has completed four distinct monuments, which began in July 1994, with a new riverfront park named Space View Park being built, providing the anchor point for the U.S. Space Walk of Fame. Space View Park honors the space program with monuments, mission plaques, and bronze hand prints of many astronauts, including six of the original seven astronauts.

The American Space Museum is now located in Historical Titusville, off of US Highway 1 southbound. Our many items and displays have been donated by individuals, astronauts, space workers, NASA, and space company contractors involved in the programs throughout its history. The museum has working consoles from the Space Shuttle Firing Rooms and from Atlas Launch Pad 36A, as well as a Model 4 Sequencer from Launch Pad 16, and many other items of historical interest.
