Museum heads straight to the moon

By Carla Meadows

The Frontiers of Flight Museum will host Moon Day 2019, the largest annual space-themed exposition in Texas and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 on Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Join the museum’s staff for a full day of family-friendly, entertaining programs and activities. There will be more than three dozen exhibitors — and Moon Day is free with regular Museum admission. The first 200 students receive a special Lunar Sample Bag. Moon Day honors the past, present and future of space flight. This year, the STEM-focused event also celebrates the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission — on the exact anniversary of the first landing on the Moon — and includes exhibits, activities and programs for all ages. Moon Day is presented in collaboration with the National Space Society of North Texas and sponsored by Beal Bank. For details, visit
