DESTINATION MOON: An Apollo 11 Mission

The North Museum is traveling to Pittsburgh in January 2019!

January 11th – 12th

“To commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary of the mission, the Heinz History Center is partnering with the Smithsonian to host Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission, an epic exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES)…”

“The “Smithsonian’s Home in Pittsburgh” is one of just four museums in the nation to host Destination Moon, which takes visitors on an in-depth exploration of the Apollo 11 mission, the birth of the American space program, and the space race. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a national treasure in Pittsburgh – the Command Module Columbia. The only portion of the Apollo 11 spacecraft to complete the first mission to land a man on the Moon and safely return him to Earth, Columbia embodies the accomplishments of the 400,000 Americans who contributed to the success of the mission. This national exhibition tour marks the first time in nearly 50 years that Columbiahas left the Smithsonian. In addition to Columbia, marvel at more than 100 artifacts, including many used by the Apollo 11 crew of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins.

Learn how Pittsburgh innovators and companies, including Westinghouse, North American Rockwell, Wabtec’s Union Switch & Signal, and others, used their “We Can Do It!” spirit to play a crucial role in the Apollo 11 mission, and discover how the region’s brightest minds continue to impact the space program today. The family-friendly exhibit will also feature an immersive “launchpad” entrance, the iconic audio from mission control, and interactives like a lunar lander video game and a virtual 3-D tour of Columbia’s interior.”
