Where were you on July 20, 1969? You can re-create that magical moment 50 years ago at Seattle’s Museum of Flight’s special exhibition. Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission. The spacecraft flown on humankind’s first journey to the moon is the centerpiece of this exhibition presented in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution. The exhibition takes you back with original Apollo 11-flown objects and unique artifacts from the Space Race. The Smithsonian’s exhibition is enhanced with The Museum of Flight’s own Space Race displays with rare objects like a Soviet Sputnik satellite, early cosmonaut spacesuit and the world’s only display of the remains of the rocket engines that boosted Apollo missions to the Moon. Also unique is a gallery about the contributions of Seattle-area industry, astronauts and engineers to the space program. Lunch is on your own at the Wing’s Café in the museum. A selection of sandwiches, salads and hot entrees are available. Includes transportation and admission.
