To the Moon

Permanent Exhibit

Created in July 2009 in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the first Moon landing, this exhibit features full-size models of the Apollo and Mercury capsules and a graphic timeline documenting the key era of human space exploration.

Learn about the Apollo program that sent 29 people into space, including the first humans to set foot on the Moon. Stand in front of a full-size model of the cockpit of the “Lunar Module” and see Moon rock fragments and other memorabilia of the era. Though visitors can no longer enter the “Apollo Command Module,” you can still take a peek inside and witness the first Moon landing!
