Plan A Visit

A visit to the New Mexico Museum of Space History is a trip into the origins of our nation's space exploration program.

The Museum is composed of:

  • The Museum of Space History. Contains exhibitions ranging from Robert Goddard's early rocket experiments near Roswell to a mock-up of the International Space Station.
  • The International Space Hall of Fame. Commemorates the achievements of men and women who have furthered humanity's exploration of space.
  • The John P. Stapp Air & Space Park. Displays larger exhibits, such as the Apollo program's Little Joe II rocket and the rocket sled that "Fastest Man Alive" Stapp rode to 632 mph.
  • Daisy Track. Commemorates aeromedical and space related tests which were crucial in developing components for NASA's Project Mercury orbital flights and the Project Apollo moon landings.
  • The Clyde W. Tombaugh IMAX Theater and Planetarium. The only such theater in southern New Mexico.
  • Astronaut Memorial Garden. A tribute to the Apollo 1 and Space Shuttle Challenger & Columbia astronauts.
  • The Museum Support Center. The facility where Museum employees and volunteers conserve and restore the many large artifacts exhibited at the Museum.
