The museum features many one-of-a-kind artifacts including the Gemini VIII spacecraft, Neil Armstrong’s Gemini and Apollo spacesuits, and an Apollo 11 moon rock. Fifteen-year-old Neil Armstrong learned to fly at Port Koneta, a long-gone Wapakoneta airfield, in the Aeronca Champion on display in our Early Space Gallery.
This is no static museum; it is filled with motion and sound. There are seven interactive exhibits, ten audio/visual elements, and two simulators. Adults and kids can practice landing the lunar module and space shuttle or docking the Gemini capsule!
The 56-foot dome in the center of the museum houses the Astro Theater, a venue that allows guests to enjoy the 25-minute documentary about Apollo 11’s lunar landing.
There is no additional charge for the simulators or the film.
