The Air Force Space and Missile Museum at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station preserves both the hardware and the spirit of United States' ventures into space. The museum displays numerous missiles, rockets and related space equipment.

The primary mission is to collect, restore, and exhibit items of historical significance which relate to the development and heritage of U.S. Air Force space launch activities. This unique museum highlights the Air Force as a major participant in America's space program and emphasizes activities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station beginning in early 1950 and continuing today.

Tours and gift shop operations are provided by a group of dedicated volunteers. The Museum Foundation provides funding for exhibit maintenance and museum operations. Management for the entire museum operation is the responsibility of the Museum Director, a civilian employee of the 45th Space Wing.
