CHICO, Calif. - You are never too young or old to shoot for the moon. That is the message at a special exhibit at Chico State's Gateway Science Museum called "Before and Beyond the Moon" celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the landing of NASA's moon module.
The executive director of the Gateway Science Museum, Adrienne McGraw, is passionate about rekindling interest in space travel and bringing the moment a man stepped on the moon to life for a new generation.
McGraw said the exhibit is really making people think about what it would be like to be in space.
The exhibit even has an antique television showing news anchor Walter Cronkite’s coverage of the moon landing from 1969.
Action News Now reporter Kristian Lopez talked to some of the children who were visiting the exhibit on Sunday. Watch the video accompanying this article to find out more about what is on display and how much it is impacting local kids and families.
The Gateway Science Museum is located at 625 Esplanade in Chico.
