Apollo 11

2019 Special Exhibit

Apo11o Exhibit

Child at Apollo ExhibitThe Apollo 11 moon landing, which put the first two humans on the moon on July 20, 1969, not only made history but also served as a moment shared by a nation. Today, many Midwesterners recall tuning in on the evening of the NASA broadcast as the lunar module, the Eagle, came in for a landing (hence, "The Eagle has landed!").
