The Queensland Museum secures its largest ever exhibition
The Queensland Museum will be hosting its largest ever exhibition: NASA - A Human Adventure, as of March this year.
Queensland Minister for the Arts and Minister for Science Leeanne Enoch said Queensland Museum beat out Sydney and Melbourne to be the first museum in Australia to host this exhibition about the story of space travel.
Minister Enoch advised “NASA - A Human Adventure will open in March and follows the astonishing story of space travel and the history of rocket science and space flight.
“This exhibition is the very first to be presented in Queensland Museum’s newly refurbished exhibition space funded through the State Government, and will be spread across two levels.
“NASA - A Human Adventure is the largest ever exhibition hosted by Queensland Museum, both in terms of size and objects, and coincides with a yearlong celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
“This exciting exhibition, together with the enhancement of the Museum’s spaces, further bolsters the Museum’s position as a leading cultural tourism destination, which last financial year saw 2.1 million visitors.
“With NASA – A Human Adventure, Queensland Museum continues to showcase the enormous impact of science and technology in our society.”
Queensland Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said the exclusive event will drive visitors to Queensland, stating "we are bringing a little bit of the magic of space exploration to Queensland through this exhibition.
“Tourism and Events Queensland partnered with Queensland Museum to bring the exhibition here because it drives jobs in tourism.”
Queensland Museum Network Chief Executive Dr Jim Thompson said NASA - A Human Adventure, will be an opportunity for visitors to learn more about some of the world’s most amazing accomplishments in space technology.
Dr Thompson added “NASA - A Human Adventure, celebrates our journey into space with objects from both the US and Soviet Union space programs.
“Visitors will be able to marvel at machines that have travelled to space and back, as well as full-sized and scaled replicas.”
Venture into the amazing world of space exploration with over 250 items on display including original and space flown objects and scaled models and replicas.
From space food to space suits, lunar cameras and moon boots, some of the highlights of the exhibition are several space-flown items, real rocket engines, and several full-scale replicas including the front section of NASA’s iconic Space Shuttle, Lunar Rover, Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space crafts and Soviet robotic lunar rover Lunokhod.
