The Eagle Has Landed

The entire world stopped to watch the Apollo 11 Moon landing mission. Relive the final few minutes leading up to the first words ever spoken from the surface of the Moon, “Houston, Tranquility Base here…the Eagle has landed.” Using 3D theatrical elements blended with actual NASA film footage and mission control recordings, the Lunar Theater recreates events of that historic day in July 1969. Apollo astronauts also share their memories from the rarest of human experiences, walking on the Moon.

While you wait for the next show to begin, take a seat at the 1960s living room and bar scene and imagine you are back in 1969 awaiting those historic moments.
