Be a part of our next exhibit… Women of the Apollo Program!

If you, a close relative, or friend worked on or during the Apollo program from 1969-1972, we’d love to hear from you!

Our next exhibit strives to educate our younger generation of girls about the Apollo program and to share the impact that women of the era had on our future generations. By telling the stories of the women who lived it, we hope to inspire young women and to further our mission of igniting a community of critical and creative thinkers!
