Year in Review: Moonshot Museum’s Top Five

2021 was a year of growth, design, and development for Moonshot Museum—and none of it could have happened without your help. As we prepare to build in 2022, we’re reflecting on the top five milestones we achieved with your support in the past year!


5. NASA Visits Mission Control Pittsburgh.

NASA’s Associate Administrator overseeing all scientific endeavors, Dr. Thomas Zurbuchen (Dr. Z), joined us in June for the announcement of Moonshot Museum’s construction and our space ecosystem collaborative with partners across the Pittsburgh region. Click to read more.


4. We’ve Never Looked Better.

A new website, a teaser trailer, an immersive virtual tour, and an expanded social media presence are just a few of the things we’ve introduced this year. The result? Moonshot Museum is more visible, accessible, and engaged with our Pittsburgh community than ever before.


3. We’re Out, About, and Growing.

From local schools to our home neighborhood of Manchester, Moonshot Museum has been hard at work over the past year making connections with neighbors, students, and teachers to build a new model for museums fueled by strong local partnerships with innovators in space, STEAM education, and access.

1. We’re Going to the Moon

No joke—Pittsburgh will return America to the surface of the Moon in 2022, and you’ll have a front row seat when Moonshot Museum opens. Museum director Sam Moore joined the TechVibe radio program to preview the out-of-this-world year that lies ahead in 2022. Click to the listen to the interview.
