Know Before You Go

Key things to see or do while visiting the site:

The Armstrong Air & Space Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums. It offers self-guided tours, guided school tours and programming and the museum is available to groups for rental for meetings and special events. Exhibits chronicle the space program from the early years of Neil Armstrong’s life to the Soviet Space Race, Gemini and Apollo missions, and the shuttle program. Visitors are invited to test their skill in a shuttle or lunar landing simulator. Sit under a ceiling of stars in the Astro-theater as you watch brief multi-media programs on space exploration. Test your skill in landing on the moon or setting down the space shuttle. 

Gift Shop & Grounds

The museum gift shop offers a variety of items, including mission patches and a favorite – space ice cream! The grounds have exhibits, including an F5D Skylancer and Gemini and Apollo command modules. A picnic area is available. Sledding is not permitted on site.
