As a Smithsonian Affiliate, the River Museum invites members to an exclusive FREE screening of the new Smithsonian Channel documentary, "The Day We Walked on the Moon," celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing.
On July 16, 1969, hundreds of thousands of spectators and an army of reporters gathered at Cape Kennedy to witness one of the great spectacles of the century: the launch of Apollo 11. Over the next few days, the world watched on with wonder and rapture as humankind prepared for its "one giant leap" onto the moon--and into history. Witness this incredible day, presented through stunning, remastered footage and interviews that takes you behind-the-scenes and inside the spacecraft, Mission Control, and the homes of the astronaut's families.
Advance registration is not required. Please bring your membership card to gain access to this screening.
