“seven interactive exhibits”
The Armstrong Air & Space Museum, named for Wapakoneta's own Neil Armstrong, exhibits a combination of aviation and aerospace collections and artifacts from the first man to walk on the moon. “The museum is designed for the experiential learner. There are seven interactive exhibits, ten audio/visual elements, and three simulators. Visitors can practice landing the lunar module and space shuttle or docking the Gemini capsule, just as Neil Armstrong did in 1966. The 56-foot dome in the center of the museum houses the Astro Theater, a unique venue that allows guests to gaze at the night sky or watch one of the informative movies. There is no additional charge for the simulators or the film. Whether your interest is in American history, aviation, space exploration, or state history, the Armstrong Air and Space Museum offers something for you.”
Great place for kids interested in space travel. Small and doable within an hour. Our 4 year old loved it and it was nice to be there for the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s landing on the moon. We ate dinner by the benches outside and flew our kites on the open fields. Good stop to take a break and stretch out.
