What's Happening

This limited-time exhibit utilizes tablets running the innovative technology "HistoPad", which immerses the visitor in the history of Sainte-Mère-Église, France, during the Occupation and the summer of 1944. Through spectacular scientifically- and historically-validated 360° recreations, museum visitors will travel in time to understand the key moments of this decisive battle for the success of D-Day.
Join us as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a Family Day, Space Suit Exibit, and Apollo films. Click the picture for more information.
Check out the Space Suits now on permanent display in Building 4 near their associated spacecraft. Six Space Suits are on display from the Mercury program through the Space Shuttle. Click on the picture for more information.
