SFMOMA Far Out Exhibit – Astronaut Space Suits Apollo 11

It was on July 20, 1969 when the first moon landing happened with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on the Apollo 11 and it was the most thrilling time for space exploration in our nations history and the world. I wasn’t born yet, but outer space travel, discovering new planets and galaxies, and that question of are there aliens or Martians and just the fascination of what would it be like one day for humans to live in space have always fascinated me.

Our day started with breakfast and coffee then a drive into San Francisco. Hubby and I attended the Far Out exhibits opening on July 20, 2019 the very day 50 years ago when Apollo landed on the moon. The exhibit was thrilling!! Set in a darker room with a circular theme (galactic theme) you can see immediately all the space suits designed through the years by various nations.

On display is the space suite from the Stanley Kubrick movie 2001 Space Odyssey and we spotted the rumored IMB theory related to the movie and Hal when we looked at the right arm of the space suite and there it is IBM (pictured) Videos play of the moon landing, inside the Apollo 11 with the astronauts and you can see a video of the process of how the space suits were actually made. There are also lots of diagrams and blueprints of space stations and futuristic pods of artist paintings and diagrams of what housing humans might look like one day. We enjoyed the Far Out exhibit at SFMOMA very much and highly recommend it to any space enthusiasts or folks interested in space exploration.

We ended our fun day with a visit to Fisherman’s Wharf. Had some yummy lunch and the seagulls were very aggressive as one swooped down and stole my hubby’s fish-n-chips!! I wore my new Old Navy gingham wrap dress and I was so happy as it barely wrinkled and was so comfortable. The dress is very light and breezy and perfect for a day at the museum and having fun in San Francisco. I am wearing my standard 2X size and Old Navy is very size inclusive so the fit was very comfortable. It is the perfect dress for summer. The dress is currently on sale so hurry on over to Old Navy and snap it up before it sells out.
