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 three simulators. Adults and kids can practice landing the lunar module and space shuttle or docking the Gemini capsule. Experience Zero Gravity with our Zero Gravity trainer!
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.
