Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum Wapakoneta Reviews
Nov 25, 2007
"Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."
Those words were uttered by Neil Armstrong, first man to step foot on the moon, and he is originally from Wapakoneta, OH. The city has a wonderful museum dedicated to his accomplishments and to other Ohio astronauts.
Among the items on display are a F5D Sky Lancer, the Gemini VIII spacecraft, Apollo 11 artifacts and a moon rock. In the museum's Astro-theater, multimedia presentations of the sights and sounds of space unfold against a starry background.
The Astro-theater is inside the domed moon of the museum's exterior. It shows a short 20 minute movie that chronicles man's successful attempt to walk on the moon.
Step back in time and relive the space race and then move forward to the future. Who knows, the first person to step on Mars may be from your hometown!
Admission is $7 for adults, $3 for kids 6-12 and under 5 is free.
