Honoring the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 8 mission, which marked our first trip around the Moon.

Launched on December 21, 1968, Apollo 8 was the second human spaceflight mission in the NASA Apollo space program. It was the first crewed spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, orbit the Moon and return safely. The Apollo 8 Command Module “landed” at MSI in 1971, where it remains a centerpiece of the Henry Crown Space Center.

To honor the mission’s historic achievements, we are offering a month-long celebration of the Moon and space!

Through January 6. Some events and experiences require additional tickets.

To the Moon and Back Again events include:
