Miami, Fla. (January 11, 2022) – Space Adventure, an unprecedented immersive experience, celebrating one of humanity’s most important milestones – the arrival of man on the moon – will make its U.S. debut in Miami on April 7, 2022. The exhibit, which is out of this world – literally – will be housed in a megastructure specifically designed for the exhibit located in the heart of Downtown Miami at Maurice A. Ferré Park (formerly known as Museum Park), next to the Pérez Art Museum (PAMM), FTX Arena and Bayside (www.spaceadventure.us). To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, Charles Duke, an astronaut who went to the moon on Apollo 16, will be present to share his experiences with attendees.
This fascinating journey through one of humanity’s most significant feats and moments includes more than 300 original NASA artifacts. Revelers will have the opportunity to experience the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions – responsible for bringing the first humans to the lunar surface – through a series of immersive rooms that include original artifacts that no one has ever seen or been given access to before. These include the control panel and counting clock of the Houston Space Center, computers used in 1960, radios used for communication between spacecraft and Earth, astronaut suits, cameras used to capture the famous images of the lunar surface and astronauts, work tools and devices that filtered the air inside the modules, the Apollo mission food menu featuring items that could be stored for decades and products developed especially for the personal hygiene of astronauts while they were in the space.
