Have any space missions/probes visited the planet? Did they land or did they fly by?

Pioneer 11 visited Saturn in 1979, Voyager 1 in 1980, and Voyager 2 in 1981. These missions were fly-by missions, but Cassini-Huygens arrived in 2004 and is still operating from orbit around Saturn.

What did these expeditions discover about this planet?

Pioneer 11 flyby

"among the discoveries were the thin F-ring and the fact that dark gaps in the rings are bright when viewed towards the Sun, or in other words, they are not empty of material"

Voyager 1

Voyager 1 did a close approach to Titan (One of Saturn's moons) and found that "Titan's atmosphere is impenetrable in visible wavelengths,"

Voyager 2

Voyager 2 was a big deal because it confirmed  "several new satellites orbiting near or within the planet's rings"

Cassini

Has sent back " radar images of large lakes and their coastlines with numerous islands and mountains" that have been found on Saturn's moon Titan.

Saturn Overall

Saturn is the sixth planet in the solar system and is known for its spectacular rings. Something you may not know about Saturn is that it is less dense than water. That means if you put Saturn in a huge bath tub it would float. Saturn is the farthest planet from Earth that you can see with a naked eye. Saturn spins so fast it can finish a rotation within 10 1/2 hours. Saturn is the fastest spinning planet other than Jupiter. Saturn is also the best planet in the solar system!!!!
