We’re celebrating space: From humanity’s first steps on the moon to today’s collaboration on the International Space Station (ISS) and beyond.
Starting at one of science’s biggest achievements—the Apollo 11 Moon landing—and continuing to the present day, the Science Museum of Minnesota’s new exhibit, Omnitheater film, Moon rock display, space-themed Science Live shows, and out of this world gifts from the Explore Store bring together all things space for an exciting look at what lies beyond our planet.
Apollo: When We Went To The Moon
This exhibit sets the scene of the space race era using objects and artifacts from the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s archives. Weaving these objects in with a bigger story—one of competition, advancement, and innovation—this exhibit showcases the science behind space exploration and what it means for people today.
Apollo 11: First Steps Edition
This movie is the perfect complement to Apollo: When We Went to the Moon. Experience NASA’s Moon landing as if you were there by watching Apollo 11: First Steps Edition. Crafted from newly-discovered, never-before-seen footage of the preparation, liftoff, and moon landing itself, this movie sheds new light on mankind’s first steps in space.
