Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission on Tour
Humankind first set foot on the moon 48 years ago, on July 20, 1969. In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the landing, the National Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service will tour Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission to four cities. The exhibition retells the story of this historic flight and features the Apollo 11 command module Columbia and other mission artifacts, as well as a 3D, virtual tour of the capsule. In 2021, Destination Moon will open in Washington, D.C., as an expanded, permanent exhibition. Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission is made possible by the support of Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos, Joe Clark, the Bruce R. McCaw Family Foundation, the Charles and Lisa Simonyi Fund for Arts and Sciences, John and Susann Norton and Gregory D. and Jennifer Walston Johnson. Transportation services are provided by FedEx.
