One of the best places to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing is among the collection of space artifacts at the PHM Digital Video Theater. There you can find items on loan from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, NASA, and former museum director Art Klinger's private collection. Featured are autographs of significant persons in the history of flight and the manned space program, including the original NASA astronaut corps.
