A sign inside the exhibit proper. It reads

Destination Moon

The Apollo 11 Mission

On July 20, 1969, as the world watched, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on another world. Above them, Michael Collins circled the Moon in the Columbia mothership. In just eight years, American astronauts had gone from a brief, fifteen-minute hop into space to Armstrong's "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Why did the United States send astronauts to the Moon? And how did we do it?
