January Adventures in the Burgh

January 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Free

Join our curious and exciting group as we explore Pittsburgh and surrounding areas! Visit local venues, delve into fun activities and discover hidden gems in our neighborhoods. We meet bi-monthly and dates/times will vary according to the activity. This is an adult only adventure--ages 18+. This month we're headed to the The Heinz History Center for the Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission exhibit. Our tour will be led by the library's own beloved volunteer Ann Pistritto, a HHC volunteer docent: On July 20, 1969, millions of Americans gathered around their television sets and witnessed world history as astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the Moon. His words are now ingrained in American culture and consciousness: “That’s one small step for (a) man… one giant leap for mankind.” The historic journey of Apollo 11 met President Kennedy’s 1961 challenge of “landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the earth” before the end of the decade. To commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary of the mission, the Heinz History Center is partnering with the Smithsonian to host Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission, an epic exhibition created by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.  The tour is free and there is plenty of paid-parking near the center You need to register to attend, either online or by calling or stopping into the library.
