Renovations and restorations continue at the Armstrong Air and Space Museum as they prepare for the 50th celebration of the moonwalk, in July 2019.

The Gemini mock-up capsule is back in its spot, in front of the museum after a recent restoration. The museum worked with the Ohio History Connection and Auglaize Auto Body to spruce up the capsule with new paint and more authentic details. Museum officials say the capsule will give people the chance to sit in one, similar to what Neil Armstrong experienced.

"And now people will be able to sit in the seats of the capsule and sort of experience the tightness that they would have felt when they're in the capsule," explained Brittany Venturella, interim director.
