Honoring Apollo 9 | Apollo Program 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Mar 03, 2019 - Mar 03, 2019 Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is continuing the Apollo Program’s 50th anniversary celebrations on March 3, the anniversary of the launch of Apollo 9. Each Apollo mission launched from here, Kennedy Space Center, and the visitor complex is honoring this milestone era in NASA history. We will celebrate the 50th anniversary of each mission by handing out an Apollo Mission Commemorative Card Set to guests visiting on each of the historic launch dates. Each pack will contain a minimum of five cards depending on the mission.

The next in the series occurs on March 3 for Apollo 9. 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.
