Treasures from the Vault
Time: Saturday, May 10, 2014 (All day) - Saturday, May 31, 2014 (All day)
Event Type: Exhibit
Location: Museum of Flight
On May 10 The Museum of Flight opens the "Treasures from the Vault" series of exhibitions with a rare display of two priceless documents from the beginnings of both aviation and the exploration of space. The inaugural display includes the original contract between Wilbur and Orville Wright and their creation, the Wright Company in 1909, and the 1969 Apollo 11 Command Service Module Maneuver Card, which has Neil Armstrong's and Buzz Aldrin's most extensive flight notes from mankind's first journey to the Moon.
The artifacts are part of the Museum's permanent collection, but rarely shown because of their value and fragility. They will be on display from May 10 through May 31.
