Exhibition Opening: ‘Out of This World: Australia in the space age’

Fri 14 May at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Orange Regional Museum invites you to the opening of ‘Out of This World: Australia in the space age’.

Welcome to the dawn of the space age. From the 1950s through to the 1970s, Australia was gripped with excitement as humanity made its first forays beyond Earth’s atmosphere. From cutting edge scientific research to architecture, design, television and more, Out of This World explores Australia’s role in the space race. Learn about the history of Woomera Rocket Range, see how Australia was involved in the first Moon landing and take the kids on their very own space mission!
