    Neil Armstrong's iconic words on July 20, 1969, went down in history as he took the first steps off the lunar module onto the moon's surface.
     
    50 years later - celebrations and exhibits are happening across the country including at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum.

    This new exhibit isn't just about the Apollo 11 missions - it also details the ties Tulsa and Oklahoma have to the space program.
     
    Visitors can also get a closer look at some of the unique things - like a command module or some of the master command consoles from that era for a more hands-on lesson on the Apollo missions.
