Collection Item Summary:

This lightweight beta cloth bag was used on the Apollo 11 mission for the storage of 70mm Hasselblad film magazines. As noted in the handwritten crewmember comments on the top of this artifact, the side pouches contained command module magazines while the center pouch contained lunar module film. Velcro closures ensured the magazines would not float around in space either before or after use.

NASA transferred this bag to the Musuem with other Apollo 11 equipment in 1970.
