J-2 Engine (Outdoors) Gallery


At one time, the Rocket Park was graced with three stand-alone rocket engine displays: An F-1, a J-2, and a lunar module descent propulsion system (DPS) engine.

By 2004, the J-2 had undergone a refurbishment and, while still outdoors, was in a protected area next to the building.

By 2005 (when the restoration of the Saturn V began), the J-2 and DPS engines were removed from the Rocket Park and shortly thereafter the J-2 and a DPS engines reappeared in what is now the the main gallery of the "old" museum.

After the Davidson Center opened, the J-2 and DPS engines found a new home there. Only the F-1 remains outdoors today.
