Journey to the Moon During A Special Showing of Apollo 11

Commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science with Apollo 11: First Steps Edition.

Apollo 11 was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. The first steps by humans on another planetary body were taken by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on July 20, 1969. Apollo 11 achieved its primary mission - to perform a manned lunar landing and return the mission safely to Earth - and paved the way for the Apollo lunar landing missions to follow.

Apollo 11: First Steps Edition is a special IMAX version of Todd Douglas Miller's thrilling documentary, showcasing the real-life moments of the famed mission.

Using never-before-seen footage and a newly discovered trove of audio recordings, the filmmakers reconstructed the Apollo 11 story in astonishing detail. Experience the exhilarating final moments of preparation, countdown, liftoff, landing, and return of this historic mission that united the world for one of humankind’s greatest achievements. Tickets start at $6 and are available at www.dmns.org.
