On Sunday, June 18, fathers can visit the Virginia Museum of History & Culture and receive free admission to the museum galleries, including the museum’s space-themed exhibition Apollo: When We Went to the Moon, as part of a special Father’s Day offering. VMHC is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Apollo: When We Went to the Moon, which will be on display now through December 31st, 2023, chronicles the history of human space exploration through artifacts, objects, and powerful media presentations organized by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Visitors can touch a piece of the Moon, be transported to the Apollo 11 launch pad as part of an immersive audiovisual experience; leave their “footprints” behind as they walk across a virtual lunar surface; and climb aboard a full-scale Apollo 17 lunar rover model to experience how astronauts got around on the moon. The museum has also partnered with NASA Langley Research center in Hampton to present a special section of the exhibition that explores Virginia’s place in this pivotal area of our history.
To receive free admission, dads can simply check in at the guest services desk when they arrive. Tickets for other members of the family can be purchased in person at the museum or online at VirginiaHistory.org
