Lunar Module

A replica of the Lunar Module, the spider-like spacecraft that carried the astronauts to the lunar surface, is the centerpiece of the museum’s exhibit devoted to the Apollo program. Also on display is an example of the boilerplate capsules used by the Navy to practice spacecraft recovery after splashdown and details about the specific American moonshots.  Both the first and last man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong and Eugene Cernan, were Naval Aviators.
