Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing at the Space Centre

 That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

Neil Armstrong

There was a time when putting a man on the Moon was the dream of nations everywhere, and that dream came true 50 years ago.

Those famous words by Neil Armstrong uttered in 1969 went on to form one of the world’s most famous quotes inspiring not just space exploration and understanding but a feeling that anything was possible. While you and the kids may not have been around to witness the spectacle and thrill of the actual moon landing, you can celebrate its 50th birthday at the Space Centre on July 20th.
