Apollo : First Moon Landing Celebration

July 20, 2019

12-4 p.m.

Commemorate the gravity-defying Apollo 11 mission that put men on the moon for the first time along with the rest of the nation with real hands-on science.

Here's why the Science Museum of Minnesota is THE destination to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing:

•There’s only one place to experience the Apollo 11: First Steps Edition documentary in the Twin Cities this summer. With immersive never-before-seen footage on the giant Omnitheater screen, you’ll feel like you were really there with Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins.

•We’ve got a slew of hands-on NASA activities to share. Build your own rockets, make a pocket solar system, and more.

You can meet NASA astronaut Col. Mark T. Vande Hei, who both lived on board the International Space Station and serviced numerous NASA missions from Mission Control.

•We’ll have two NASA Solar System Ambassadors on site to indulge your curiosities about space.

•You can take a simulated flight around the moon in a NASA Moon Trek VR experience.
 
•And more!
 
Included with museum admission.

Now through August 4: See Apollo 11: First Steps Edition and the exhibit galleries for just $19.69! (In commemoration of 1969, that pivotal year in human achievement, of course!) Get your tickets now for this unforgettable anniversary at an unbeatable price.
