One Giant Leap Festival (Free at the NC Museum of History)

  • North Carolina Museum of History 5 East Edenton Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Join Kid Lab and the North Carolina Museum of History as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s lunar landing! The indoor and outdoor celebration will feature hands-on crafts, demonstrations, and activities—including a virtual-reality lab where you can “travel” to space and be on the moon; and a bungee-jumping station where you, too, can experience weightlessness, like real astronauts. More out-of-this-world fun will be announced as the festival nears!

The One Giant Leap Festival is part of Lift Off NC: Apollo+Beyond—a yearlong celebration that marks 50 years since the first human stepped on the moon. LiftOffNC includes festivals, exhibits, lunar- and star-gazing parties, feature films and documentaries, model rockets, space camps, astronomy days, musical performances, and more from all around the Triangle.
