Due to unforeseen elevator maintenance, and to ensure equal access to all our visitors, the 2nd floor of the Museum in Washington, DC, including this exhibit, is temporarily closed and we expect to reopen it near the end of August.
Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit from the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing is back on display for the first time in 13 years.
The spacesuit recently underwent an extensive conservation process funded by thousands of public donations through a Kickstarter campaign in 2015. A state-of-the-art display case and mannequin were created to help protect the fragile suit while on display.
It will be displayed in the Wright Brothers gallery across from the piece of the Wright flyer that Neil Armstrong took with him to the Moon in 1969.
