Meticulously handcrafted in mahogany, this exceptionally detailed and high quality Apollo 11 Capsule Model is a 1:25 scale replica of the one which carried astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins to the Moon in 1969. Wooden display stand included.
Our National Air and Space Museum is currently marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions—including the first moon landing on July 20, 1969—with a special exhibition Apollo to the Moon, the story of human exploration of the moon by the United States. The exhibition features an unparalleled display of artifacts from Apollo and earlier missions, including a huge F-1 rocket engine, a scale model of the Saturn V rocket, space food, and personal items that the astronauts took with them into space. The gallery also displays Air and Space Museum treasures: spacesuits worn by Apollo astronauts on the Moon.

Additionally the Air and Space Museum will help lead a national celebration of this milestone Apollo anniversary with a number of other special exhibits and activities. The traveling exhibition Destination Moon is currently on a two-year tour. The newly conserved Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 spacesuit will be displayed again for the first time in 13 years in July 2019. The culmination of this year-long celebration will be a five-day event (July 16-20, 2019) on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Though not currently on display, the Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia was transferred to the Smithsonian in 1971. The Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia has been designated as a "Milestone of Flight" by our National Air and Space Museum.
