Traveling Exhibit Destination Moon

Traveling exhibit now on display!

Destination: Moon

Relive key moments in humanity’s journey to reach the moon! Stop by the Penfield Public Library throughout the month of February to view our poster exhibit “Destination Moon: the Apollo 11 Mission.” The posters feature a timeline of key events in the early space race going back to the Soviet Union’s launch of Sputnik I in October 1957 and include an examination of the Mercury and Gemini missions leading up to the Apollo 11 moon landing of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on July 20, 1969.

This poster exhibit was designed by the National Air and Space Museum in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission. One of the goals of the exhibit is to inspire a new generation of scientists, explorers, and those who dare to dream.

Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission Poster Exhibition is based on a traveling exhibition of the same name, developed by the National Air and Space Museum and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. The exhibition is made possible by the support of Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos, Joe Clark, Bruce R. McCaw family Foundation, the Charles and Lia Simonyi Fund for Arts and Sciences, John and Susann Norton, and Gregory D. and Jennifer Walton Johnson.
