"Apollo 11: One Giant Leap for Mankind" - through January 12, 2020 [Orange County]

When President Richard Nixon called to congratulate Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on their successful lunar landing, it was the longest-distance phone call ever, at 238,000 miles. At this 50th anniversary exhibit, relive the thrill of that internationally televised event from the comfort of a typical 1969 living room before taking a 360-degree virtual reality trip to the moon's surface. See the phone the president used, a moon rock the astronauts brought home, plus personal items and instruments used during the mission.
