Apollo: When We Went to the Moon

Saturday, October 2 through Sunday, January 2, 2022
Discovery Place Science

Space exploration has inspired and united us as a nation ever since we first set our sights on the Moon. Now, as the world awaits humanity’s return to the Moon through NASA’s Artemis program, launch yourself behind the scenes of the first Moon landing during this limited-run exhibition—for anyone and everyone who has ever wondered, "Where will humanity go next?”

Explore the Apollo era through an interactive and immersive experience that puts you in the astronaut’s seat and at the forefront of human space exploration. You’ll experience the Moon like never before through the eyes of the engineers and boots of the astronauts who lived it. More than 100 artifacts from the U.S. Space & Rocket Center will be on display along with activities designed to relive the excitement and awe of the Space Race.

Entrance to Apollo: When We Went to the Moon is included with General Admission to Discovery Place Science. Tickets must be purchased online and in advance at discoveryplace.org.

Apollo: When We Went to the Moon is a touring exhibition co-produced by U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL and Flying Fish. Discovery Place's presentation of this exhibition is generously sponsored by Honeywell.
