Visitors will be able to experience virtual reality and play with model rockets. But the most anticipated part of the exhibit is the special console from NASA.
It is fully restored, so visitors are able to actually perform launch and landing sequences.
“It’s very unique to be able to touch and play through missions on a mission control console that was touched by thousands of engineers over many decades for NASA, so that’s pretty special,” Dan Ruby, executive director, said.
This console was last used in 1992 when the first African American woman was sent to space.
The ‘Apollo 50’ exhibit stays open until mid October.
