In commemoration of the 47th anniversary of the first moon landing, the National Air and Space Museum will display Neil Armstrong’s lunar extravehicular gloves and helmet for the first time since 2012. The artifacts recently underwent conservation as part of the successful “Reboot the Suit” Kickstarter campaign conducted in summer 2015. They will be on view for one year, beginning July 20, at the museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va.
As a public health precaution, both of our locations, along with all Smithsonian museums, are temporarily closed. See our message to visitors.
