Welcome to the Virtual Tour of the Destination Moon exhibition opened in 2022 at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. The exhibition explores the human spaceflight program in the United States from the Space Race to the Apollo missions to the moon. Featuring some of the Museum's most iconic artifacts from the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, this exhibit shows how an extraordinary combination of motivations, resources, and technologies made it possible for humans to walk on the Moon—and how and why we are going back today.
