The Museum of Flight proudly presents a special collection of costumes and properties used in the making of Universal Studio’s blockbuster movie First Man. The Museum of Flight has been associated with First Man filmmakers and distributor Universal Studios since production started in 2017. The partnership resulted in this premiere exhibition of costumes and properties used in the making of the movie. First Man opens in theaters nationwide on October 12, 2018.

First Man, the movie based on James R. Hansen’s book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong is the first Hollywood feature about the global hero whose dangerous mission to the Moon and “small step” forever changed humanity’s bonds with Earth and space.

Neil Armstrong developed a close kinship to the author of his biography, who serves as a co-producer on the film, which allowed the production to move forward. “Neil thought that as long as we followed the blueprint that Jim provided, he was comfortable with us making this film,” says First Man producer Wyck Godfrey.

Academy Award winning director (La La Land) Damien Chazelle, Academy Award winning screenwriter (The Post, Spotlight) Josh Singer and First Man’s stellar production team, cast and crew collaborated with Armstrong’s family,his biographer, NASA, Apollo engineers and Apollo astronauts to make an authentic and gripping portrayal of the astronaut’s personal and immeasurably public journey. The film stars Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy.
