Apollo 11 was the first mission in which humans walked on the lunar surface and returned to Earth. On 20 July 1969 two astronauts (Apollo 11 Commander Neil A. Armstrong and LM pilot Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr.) landed on the Moon in the Lunar Module while the Command and Service Module with pilot Michael Collins continued in lunar orbit. During their stay on the Moon, the astronauts set up scientific experiments, took photographs, and collected lunar samples. The Lunar Module took off from the Moon on 21 July and the astronauts returned to Earth on 24 July.
There is so much to see in this museum and it took us around 3 hours to explore it. From the beginning of flight to Space exploration. Here is a small slide show to show how many things we saw at the National Air & Space Museum.
