At the Lunar Theatre you will be able to relive the minutes leading up to monumental moon landing in July 1969. With 3D theatrical elements and real NASA footage, hear the famous words uttered, “Houston, Tranquility Base here…the Eagle has landed” and watch the Apollo astronauts share their personal experiences of that incredible moment.
