Mercury Capsule - a life-sized replica of the spacecraft that took the first American Astronauts to space!

Lunar Excursion Module (LEM): this is a 90% scale mockup of the spacecraft that ferried astronauts from lunar orbit to the surface and back. The LEM model was used at a Motorola technology show in 2006.

Lunar Rover: this is an exact replica of one of the moon buggies that roamed the surface of the moon. It was built in 1971 for the Harrah's Casino Car Collection.

Space Capsule: This Gemini Capsule Boilerplate was used for parachute tests in 1963. It sat on a public playground in Auburn, CA until The W Foundation purchased it and repainted it. It is currently on display at the USS Hornet Museum.

SOKOL Spacesuit: this Russian made spacesuit arrived from Moscow in 2013. This is the same suit worn by all astronauts who journey to the International Space Station.
