South Carolina State Museum - Apollo 16 & Beyond - Charlie Duke

Looking for a good day trip? 

Check out the new exhibit, Apollo 16 & Beyond, at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia.

It features actual gear and suits worn by astronaut Charlie Duke, who was the youngest man to walk on the moon.

Above, Hunter Bell, 17, takes a look at Duke's actual  helmet worn during his moonwalk. Below is the key to the city of Lancaster, given to Duke in May of 1972. 

There's much more to be seen in this amazing exhibit. Visitors can also learn about South Carolinians who have had a direct impact in American space exploration history. 

The museum is located at:

301 Gervais St, Columbia, SC 29201
