NASA’s Apollo 11 program had the mission of sending men to walk on the Moon for the first time. The program, which first started on May 25, 1961, will remain forever etched in history along with the famous words spoken by Neil Armstrong: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

The Cité de l’Espace in Toulouse is a scientific and cultural center devoted to the discoveries and marvels of space. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo program, the Cite de l’Espace is putting on an exhibition with a lunar theme, entitled “Moon: Episode II”. This awe-inspiring exhibition will help you to understand the challenges of the future.

It will incorporate the “Apollo Mission” exhibit (Moon walk simulator), films (looking back at the first step on the Moon), as well as conferences hosted by some exceptional guests. From July 21 until the end of the “Moon: Episode II” exhibition, a life-size LM (lunar module) will also be on display at the Cité de l’Espace.
