Best Kennedy Space Center tour for 11yr old?

We are planning to spend one day at the Kennedy Space center with our 11yr old son. What tour or buildings would you recommend we do with the limited amount of time that we have?

We went in February 2007 when my son was 11. I would recommend the Up Close tour. The Then and Now Tour was just too long even for my son who is a space travel buff and can tell you who was on every Mercury, Gemini and Apollo flight.

We went back in 2008 and did the standard tour - it was not nearly as exciting as the Up Close tour. We only had about 5 hours after a cruise in 2008 so we opted for the regular tour.

Here is my review from the February 2007 visit


We were also back for the STS 127 launch a few months ago and did not do any of the tours as they shut them down early on launch days.
