50th Anniversary: Apollo 11 at Cincinnati Museum Center

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, the Cincinnati Museum Center has an exhibit called Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission. The Command Module, which is the only part of the Apollo 11 spacecraft to return to Earth intact, is a highlight of the exhibit. Other key pieces from the National Air and Space Museum included the survival kit for astronauts and Buzz Aldrin’s gold-plated helmet and thermal-insulated gloves. The exhibit is open until February 17, 2020. Tickets range from $7.50 for children and $16.50 for adults.

While you are at the museum center you can continue your space adventure and check out the IMAX theater Apollo 11: First Steps Edition. Crafted from a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of audio recordings, Apollo 11: First Steps Edition puts you at the center of NASA’s historic lunar landing.

Created entirely from archival materials provided by NASA and the National Archives, the film features stunning shots of the launch, inside Mission Control and recovery and post-mission activities. Relive the first steps and remarkable achievement of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins and thousands of people behind the scenes in stunning footage revealed to the public for the first time. IMAX tickets range from $7 for children and $9 for adults.
