This new 10,000 square foot exhibit installed in the Museum’s Gary Havener upstairs gallery was developed and created by the Museum’s team of scientists, curators, designers and educators to tell the story of space exploration past, present and future. With our deep collection of space artifacts, custom-built interactive components and a cutting-edge layer of technology, Launchpad: Apollo 11 Promises Kept takes you on a cosmic journey through space and the Museum’s future.
