Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit from the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing is on display for the first time in 13 years in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The spacesuit recently underwent an extensive conservation process funded by thousands of public donations through a Kickstarter campaign in 2015. A state-of-the-art display case and mannequin were created to help protect the fragile suit while on display.
It will be temporarily displayed near the 1903 Wright Flyer until its future home, the Destination Moon exhibition, is completed in approximately 2022.
