About usAfter Neil Armstrong landed on the moon in 1969, the attention of the nation and the world focused in part on Wapakoneta, Ohio. Members of the news media (television and radio) flocked to Wapakoneta to the home of Neil’s parents to interview them as the Apollo 11 mission unfolded. Upon his return, his hometown treated Neil to a parade and a huge celebration where thousands (including celebrities) gathered. The parade culminated at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds. At that time James A. Rhodes, Governor of Ohio, was in attendance and soon thereafter suggested that a museum be constructed in Wapakoneta honoring Neil and his accomplishments as well as the achievements of the US Space Program. The State committed $500,000.00. Local individuals and organizations matched that pledge. The plaque on the museum wall indicates such support. The Museum was formally dedicated on July 20, 1972.
