Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings by taking part in a truly unique experience as you "walk on the Moon" (on a giant lunar floor map). The Museum is the only place in New Mexico and one of the few places in the country to have this 60' X 20' moon map on loan from NASA. We are the first to have this geological lunar map after its appearance on the National Mall in Washington DC to celebrate the Apollo 11 Anniversary. New Mexico has long been involved in studying the geology of the Moon, using New Mexico's volcanoes as analogs to lunar volcanism.
Visitors are allowed to walk on the map if they remove their shoes and have socks on. Sorry, but our temporary loan agreement prohibits strollers, wheelchairs, walkers, or canes. So...come walk on the moon...this afternoon. Activities for all ages will include virtual reality apps and a video loop showing highlights of the Apollo missions.
