APOLLO 11 TURNS 50: Sam’s Limousine has Access to Houston’s Best Event!

Houston is synonymous with space, so it’s no surprise that the Space Center is a popular draw for residents and visitors alike.

This month is extra special, as Space Center Houston celebrates the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, sponsored by Budweiser, Lockheed Martin, and T Mobile.

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

July 20th celebrates not just the lunar landing of Apollo 11 but also Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s first steps on the moon where those famous words were first spoken. Apollo 11 has been the topic of an award-winning movie and countless books, but there’s nothing like celebrating here in Houston, with the echoes of history that are still so prevalent here.


Sam’s Limousine has the keys to the bash, offering safe, reliable, and affordable transportation to this summer’s hottest ticket in town.

Here’s your guide to Houston’s biggest event this summer!

Daily festivities include special movie screenings, interactive missions, tram tours, and pop-up science labs through July 24th.

Special events hosted by Space Center Houston include:

  • Live Concert
  • NASA tours
  • Apollo legends

A highlight of the tram tour is the new, improved Apollo Mission Control Center, an exhibit now open after an intensive two-year renovation project.

The footprints of time removed, the Control Center now mimics its former state back in 1969. Enjoy the room as it once was, with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Even the console and displays have been lovingly restored and recreated in order to provide visitors a real authentic experience!

On July 18th, the special sponsor tent opens, featuring all sort of activities and giveaways for guests of all ages.

And even better? These activities are all included with general admission! There are exclusive opportunities, as well, limited to ticket-holders.

While celebrations will take place across the country, there’s nothing like Houston where it all began.

Special events kick off on July 16th with the sold-out luncheon with Apollo flight controllers. On July 18th, enjoy Lunch with the Children of Apollo, as well as a special evening featuring never-before-seen footage and stories of the man himself, Neil Armstrong. Lessons from Mission Control is scheduled for July 19th, featuring former NASA flight director Gene Kranz.


July 20th will bring the largest celebration yet, with performances by hit recording artists, WALK THE MOON and Phillip Phillips.

It will be an all-day celebration, culminating in a special countdown to Neil Armstrong’s landmark arrival on the moon. Don’t miss the esteemed panelists hosting special presentations, as well as book signings by “Dutch” von Ehrenfried and Rich Houston.

The opening ceremony will feature an appearance by the U.S. Army’s aerial parachute team, the Golden Knights.

The Army will also lend an actual Apache helicopter for view, as well as an exclusive exhibition trailer dedicated to robotics. Stay tuned for the Jerry Woodfill Rock and Roll Show!

NASA will offer late-night tram tours, as well as legendary speakers, book signings, and a family-focused learning zone. There are even cooling areas to help you beat the heat!
