The History Museum of Catalonia (MHCAT) celebrates the 50th anniversary of Moon landing with a unique and immersive exhibition

On Saturday July 20, the History Museum of Catalonia (MHCAT) celebrates the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first humans to our planet's Moon, which was marked with Neil Armstrong's legendary declaration, 'That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'. On July 16, 1969, American astronauts Armstrong, Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin and Michael Collins set foot on the surface of the moon for the first time. Do you remember or have you since learned what the journey was like? There's no need to answer now, because the MHCAT offers you the chance to (re-)live this epic moment in human history. In fact, the museum has prepared an exhibition to commemorate this milestone, and everyone's invited. You'll find a planetarium in the museum lobby where you can learn, in a fun and immersive way, what the Apollo 11 mission was like. Plus, you'll also get the chance to see historical images, watch the first TV report covering the launch of the Spttnik 1 satellite, and read the news that was published in Catalonia about the event. You can even listen to John F. Kennedy's speech announcing the intention to send humans to the Moon.

The activity will be repeated in four sessions (at 12pm, 1pm, 5pm and 6pm). You need to book in advance via email or by calling 93 225 42 44.
