To mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing the South Carolina State Museum presents a new exhibition charting the history of NASA’s Apollo program and South Carolina’s role in lunar exploration. This new, immersive exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the years of the Apollo program as America raced to accomplish a lunar landing before the Soviet Union. Guests can also learn about Apollo 16 astronaut, Charles Duke, who grew up in Lancaster, SC and other notable South Carolinians who contributed to the Apollo program.
