Museum to offer free admission in memory of Armstrong

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Neil Armstrong, remembered as the first human to walk on the moon, died Saturday at 82-years-old.

In honor and memory of the Ohio native, the Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC) is offering free admission to the Museum of Natural History and Science beginning Sunday through Labor Day, September 2nd.

Armstrong served as an advisor, member and chairman of the board of trustees for the museum. He also chose the CMC's Museum of Natural History and Science to receive a moon rock from his Apollo 11 mission during a NASA ambassadors for science program in 2006.

"Neil has been an inspiration to so many, here locally and around the world," conveyed Douglass W. McDonald, president and CEO of Cincinnati Museum Center.  "He is truly an American hero and a man of quiet dedication to science.  We hope his contributions to science and humanity will continue to inspire future scientists and engineers in generations to come." 

At the museum, visitors can see his moon rock on display, along with a replica of his space suit and tools from the famous Apollo 11 mission.

The museum is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
