Science Museum

Our three-month Summer of Space festival celebrates the history of human space exploration and looks at where  future endeavours might take us.

Neil Armstrong became the first human to place his foot on the surface of the Moon on 21 July 1969, following the earlier success of the Apollo 10 dress rehearsal in May in the same year.

Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of these extraordinary moments, the Museum's out-of-this-world celebration will reveal the evolution of humanity’s relationship with space through bumper family weekend festivals, thought-provoking evening events and much more.
