Millions of people held their breath while a single man stepped onto the moon’s surface – a journey that began just a short distance from where the Apollo/Saturn V Center stands today. For those who remember, the event remains in their minds just as those footprints remain in the lunar soil.
Here, in a spacious facility featuring a real Saturn V rocket, the Apollo program returns spectacularly to life.
The Apollo/Saturn V Center is a tribute to the Apollo astronauts and the machines that got them there – and brought them home safely.

Also on display is Apollo 16 astronaut John Young’s cuff check list with instructions on how to deploy the American flag on the moon and Apollo 13’s spacesuit repair kit and service module rescue book. The Treasures Gallery opened on July 16, 2009, in celebration of 40 years of Apollo.
