Capcom Go: The Apollo Story (3D)

Capcom Go: The Apollo Story (3D)

Capcom GO! is an immersive 3D Planetarium show documenting the Apollo programme, and what it took to put the first person on the Moon 50 years ago. Discover the story behind this historic moment, which continues to inspire generations of explorers and dreamers.

On 20 July, 1969, 600 million people around the world gathered to witness an historic moment of human achievement, broadcast live from the Moon. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, Neil Armstrong famously said, as the world celebrated the astronauts taking their first steps on the Moon. Few people were aware of just how huge an effort it had been to get them there though.

These Apollo 11 astronauts were just two of nearly 400 000 people who had worked for more than 10 years towards this goal.

But how did they do it? Come to the Planetarium and find out.

Child: (3–18 years or Community Services Card) $7

Concession: (Student ID, Gold Card, Friends of Museum or Annual Pass) $9

Adult: $12

Further ticketing options and combos are available from the Otago Museum Shop.
