This command module is displayed in a unique fashion: It is mounted on a turntable, inside of a glass-walled room, and it slowly rotates on its turntable. This takes all the work out of inspecting the command module: Just stand in one place, and eventually the entire thing will pass before your eyes.

Of course, photographing a moving target in a dimly-lit environment has its challenges. Luckily, one of the staff members noticed me taking pictures, and offered to stop the CM's rotation. He stood by the switch and when I gave him the nod, he turned it off. So, I was able to get some nice, steady pictures of the front of the command module.

The command module is displayed with its hatch removed; the hatch itself is displayed on the floor in front of the command module.

As of now, I have not yet sorted through all of my pictures of SL-3, but some other page references this location. Thus, this is a "place holder" version right now, with only the pictures actually referenced. Come back some time later to see if I've finished up, or drop me an email to request me to prioritize the rest of these pictures.
