In the 1960s, President John F. Kennedy ignited the spark that launched the program which landed and safely returned the first person to set foot on the surface of the Moon.

Now, as we approach the 49th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s momentous “one small step,” the excitement of the space race comes to the Saint Louis Science Center for Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission.

The traveling special exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Services (SITES) and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. features the command module Columbia that orbited the Moon, as well as other artifacts from the first successful lunar mission.
