As space exploration has evolved, so have the exhibits at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. But the focus has remained the same: to stand not only as a repository of Ohio's aeronautical history and a monument to Ohio's contribution to aviation and space exploration, but also as a tribute to Ohioan Neil Armstrong, whose "one small step for a man" was indeed a "giant leap for mankind."
The Armstrong Museum will be open Tuesday, July 4 for Independence Day.
Find something for everyone at our Museum Store.
We have plenty to offer from apparel, collectables, books, posters, rockets, and toys!

On March 16, 1966, command pilot Neil Armstrong and pilot David Scott successfully docked their Gemini VIII spacecraft, the first-ever linking of two spacecraft together in Earth orbit.
While on their historic Apollo 11 mission in July of 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin collected lunar samples to bring back to Earth to be tested, including the one our museum has on display.
Neil Armstrong spacesuits from the Gemini and Apollo missions are on display in the museum for all to see. Come have a closer look!
