DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

The Armstrong Air & Space Museum shares the stories of Neil Armstrong, all Ohioans who have attempted to defy gravity, the Space Race, and current space exploration. The museum itself is designed to resemble a futuristic moon base and is most beautiful when viewed at dusk. The museum features many one-of-a-kind artifacts including the Gemini VIII spacecraft, Neil Armstrong’s Gemini and Apollo spacesuits, and an Apollo 11 moon rock. It is also home to two full-size aircraft, both of which were flown by Mr. Armstrong. A 15-year-old Armstrong learned to fly at Port Koneta, a long-gone Wapakoneta airfield. The yellow Aeronca Champion airplane he flew there is also exhibited at the museum.

The Museum opened on July 20, 1972, the third anniversary of the first lunar landing. Since then, more than 2.5 million people have visited.
