Throughout human history, humanity has looked to the heavens with wonder at its beauty and majesty. Over the millennia, that wonder has turned to questions all characterized by the inquisition, “What is beyond our world?” Fifty years ago, three brave men left Earth in an attempt to answer that question, and two of those men stood on the surface of the moon. “One small step for man,” indeed.

This summer The Liberty Museum will ask the question, “What does freedom mean in space?” The exhibits will explore the steps that it took for a man to take that “giant leap for mankind,” and what that leap means for freedom on the final frontier. Where will that freedom take us and what might we find when we get there?
