WHAT: Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission
WHERE: Heinz History Center
WHEN: Through February 18, 2019

Why You Should Go:

Blast off into space for out-of-this-world fun at Heinz History Center — one of only four U.S. museums to host the Smithsonian blockbuster, Destination Moon.

See 100 artifacts used by Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins, including a survival kit, star charts and the “rock box” used to collect lunar samples. Hear mission control audio, see astronaut graffiti and discover Pittsburgher’s role in the groundbreaking mission.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Command Module Columbia built by Pittsburgh-based North American Rockwell, a national treasure that hasn’t left the Smithsonian in 50 years.
