The Astronaut Hall of Fame is part of the Visitor Complex and is included in regular guest admission.
The U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled for May 3, 2014 with the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's annual gala preceding the night before on May 2.

Astronaut Hall of Fame to add two record-setting space shuttle fliers

A spacewalker who flew a record seven times into orbit and the first American woman to complete a long-duration space station mission will be inducted into the U.S. Astronaut of Hall of Fame, officials announced on Friday (Feb. 7).

Former NASA astronauts Jerry Ross and Shannon Lucid were revealed as the Hall of Fame's 2014 honorees during a ceremony held Friday at NASA's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. Ross and Lucid will be formally enshrined into the Hall on May 3 during a public induction to include many of the institution's 85 astronaut members.

"[Lucid and Ross] are extraordinary astronauts who made history as important and frequent crewmembers on shuttle missions," Dan Brandenstein, a four-time shuttle flier and 2003 Astronaut Hall of Fame inductee, remarked. "We are looking forward to honoring their accomplishments and to sharing their tremendous life stories."
