One aspect of Neil Armstrong's life that is seldom studied or talked about is the forty years after his famous first steps. With artifacts like the Learjet 28 Longhorn, our museum is helping shine light on the life and legacy of Mr. Armstrong after his career as an astronaut. Join us on July 20, 2022, as we officially dedicate this aircraft as it makes its final home here at the museum.
