The San Diego Air & Space Museum will be the place to be on Saturday July 20, the 50th Anniversary to the day when Man first set foot on the Moon.
The Museum is hosting a one-of-a-kind evening celebrating Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s historic Moon landing, with unique family friendly activities, the San Diego-premier of a special documentary from the Smithsonian Channel titled "The Day We Walked on the Moon," and tours of our newest world-class exhibit, “SPACE: Our Greatest Adventure,” which includes the actual Apollo 9 Command Module that traveled to space just months prior to Apollo 11.
The event at the San Diego Air & Space Museum will be the only one of its kind in the Southwest region and is geared toward families and explorers of all ages. Whether you were one of the millions who watched the Apollo 11 Moon landing live on television, or are just learning about Man’s quest to walk on the lunar surface for the first time, July 20, 2019, is a can’t miss date to experience history at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.
The Museum will be open during regular business hours on July 20 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After closing briefly, the Museum will re-open at 6:00 p.m. In addition to the SPACE gallery, the Museum's newest exhibition "EUREKA: An Interactive History of Science," also will be open. The celebration will also feature family-friendly interactive activities, simulators, and the 3D/4D movie theater.
"The Day We Walked on the Moon" will air in the Pavilion of Flight at 8:30 p.m. and is free with paid general admission to the Museum. The celebration also will be free for Museum Members and Balboa Park Explorer Pass holders.
