June 22 - August 31
The Space Station Museum in Novato, CA has partnered with Non Plus Ultra to present a new exhibit called “Exploring Space”. This free exhibition, located at the Palace of Fine Arts Exhibition Center in San Francisco, will feature space artifacts and rare photographs from the extensive private collection of The W Foundation (operator of The Space Station Museum). Space education programs are also planned throughout the summer in the Palace of Fine Arts Theater.
“When people visit the Palace of Fine Arts,” says museum co-founder Ken Winans, “they will get to see the only large-scale Apollo Lunar Module and Moon Buggy exhibit in California. “Exploring Space” will also honor John W. Young, an Apollo astronaut who was born in San Francisco.
Since its founding in 2011, The Space Station Museum has received over 105,000 visitors and hosts an annual event called the Novato Space Festival. The museum was also featured in the Travel Channel’s Emmy award-winning show, “Mysteries at the Museum”.
Although the exhibition has already opened to the public,legendary astronaut Al Worden will be on hand for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 8th at 1:00 p.m. Then at 2 p.m., join us for a Skype conversation with NASA Mission Commander Robert L. “Hoot” Gibson.
