The Museum of Interesting Things Astroland Anniversary show

Dates: 
Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 7:00pm

What better way to celebrate the Coney Island AstroLand’s Anniversary then to see classic 16mm films many actual Nasa films from the Space Race and early 1900’s circus films too! And then get to touch actual items from the Space Race and the Museum’s Windup Circus show too!

See Vintage 16mm films and touch interesting Space Race/Cold War/WW2 things!

The Space Race, the Cold War and the Atomic Era fueled an era of exploration and invention that still influences products, design and culture to this day! The Museum of Interesting Things brings together this trend with an exhibition filled with items inspired by the space race, cold war & WW2 with actual items from Nasa, WW2 and the cold war as well as the Atomic/Radiology items and unique spy items. People get to actually see and handle authentic space race, military and domestic items from this era and someone may even get to try on an actual Nasa Space Shuttle Jumpsuit!

FILM addition:

The Museum also has a massive collection of original vintage Nasa and WW2 footage much of which was produced internally by Nasa for the news stations in the 1950's through the 1970's on such programs like the Saturn and Apollo programs as well as interviews with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and Dr. Robert Goddard, Wehrner Von Braun. In between each short film we demonstrate items from the space race and cold war.
