The moon. And then?

50 years from the moon landing: history and outlooks of space exploration

ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.

The first Moon Landing, in July 1969, wasn't only an extraordinary scientific and technical event, but also a moment that changed the present into future: "One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.
50 years after the lunar landing, the exhibition explains the phases of the moon-conquest with the Apollo mission and the space race between the two big powers at that time, United States and Soviet Union. The intent is also to understand the new horizons for humanity's future. Increased reality, immersive casting and archival footage are the core of the layout, focusing on experience-based dimension. To live again the history of the space exploration, the Apollo Mission, the Shuttle program and the International Space Station, you will:
  • Experiment, thanks to virtual reality, the first walk on the Moon, done in 1965 from the Russian astronaut Leonov
  • experience the feeling to be thrown to the Moon on the Saturn V
  • understand how it feels to live and work in a permanent space-house, the ISS, to plan the future space-exploration and trips to Mars.
Between the relics, you will find documents and authentic objects, flight plans, astronaut's equipment, suit reproduction of astronaut Dave Scott, captain of Apollo 15, and the copy of Sojuz, the USSR spaceship. The Apollo 15 was the first mission, where the astronauts ploughed the moon with mechanical means. In the exhibition, there is also a perfect and working copy of the Lunar Rover. The vehicle, created following the original designs of NASA from the Marangoni Company of Rovereto, is used also for in-motion demonstration. The exhibition is organised from City Museum Foundation of Rovereto together with Eclipse Events of Milan, and in sponsorship with SSERVI ((Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute) and NASA.
