Second World War Women’s Poster Collection

The San Diego Air and Space Museum's Curatorial collection holds several posters from the Second World War that were produced by the US government with different specific purposes but one goal: to win the War. Many of these posters are aimed at Women.


Apollo 17 Moon Rock

The moon rock on display near the exit of the Space Exhibit inside the San Diego Air & Space Museum was collected by the astronauts of Apollo 17, the last manned mission to the moon in 1972. The sample we have is particularly important in U.S. space exploration history, since it came from the area where the age and method of creation of the moon were determined. This was one of the major scientific goals of the Apollo program.
