Honoring Apollo 11 | Apollo Program 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Jul 16, 2019 Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is continuing the Apollo Program’s 50th anniversary celebrations on July 16, the anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11. Each Apollo mission launched from Kennedy Space Center, and the visitor complex is honoring this milestone era in NASA’s history. We are celebrating the 50th anniversary of each launch by handing out an Apollo Mission Commemorative Card Set to guests visiting on the historic launch dates. Each pack will contain mission-specific facts and will include a minimum of five cards depending on the mission, but for Apollo 11, additional special edition cards will be included.

Apollo 11 commemorative trading cards will only be available on July 16, 2019. Upon arrival, please visit Information or Guest Services to pick up your card set. While visiting, be sure to take the newly updated Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour to the Apollo/Saturn V Center to get up close to the Apollo Program. There, you can experience what an Apollo launch was like, walk under a massive Saturn V Moon rocket, touch a Moon rock and more!

Continue your collection while supplies lasts. Please note that daily admission is required to receive this commemorative gift. Limited quantities are available.
