Living In Space Exhibit – The unique conditions of space required new methods of eating, sleeping and waste management including new types of food and clothing. Interestingly, the zero-gravity toilets for both Skylab and the Space Shuttle were built on Long Island. Thus this exhibit includes many unappealing, but interesting, Apollo-era food and hygiene items as well as space-suit components, space underwear and several hygiene items flown on the Space Shuttle.

Pop Culture Exhibit – A look at the collectibles, toys, and memorabilia of Moon Mania including Astronaut Snoopy, View Master, and Lunar Module toy models.
