Millions of people held their breath while a single man stepped onto the moon’s surface – a journey that began just a short distance from where the Apollo/Saturn V Center stands today. For those who remember, the event remains in their minds just as those footprints remain in the lunar soil.
Here, in a spacious facility featuring a real Saturn V rocket, the Apollo program returns spectacularly to life.
The Apollo/Saturn V Center is a tribute to the Apollo astronauts and the machines that got them there – and brought them home safely.
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Man's First Steps on the Moon
Apollo astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Walter Cunningham, Edgar Mitchell, Al Worden, Charlie Duke; and Apollo support crew Jerry Carr, Vance Brand and Bruce McCandless, celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Apollo and marked the opening of a new exhibit at the Apollo/Saturn V Center. The new exhibit showcases rarely seen treasures from the Apollo moon missions.
The Apollo artifacts in the new exhibit include a rare collection of spacesuits and other gear used by the Apollo moonwalkers to explore the lunar surface.
