If you thought the restoration and re-opening of the TWA Flight Center at JFK airport was cool, then you definitely have to see the newly restored and open to the public historic NASA Apollo Mission Operations Control Room 2 in Houston!
The restoration project cost $5 million dollars, some of which came from Space Center Houston with additional funds provided by Webster (the Houston suburb where it's located) and a successful half-a-million-dollars Kickstarter Campaign.
"The Eagle has landed" and "Houston, we've had a problem" were both uttered in this space.
You can read more about the restoration effort (and props to the author for donating to the Kickstarter) here!
Want to play your trip to Houston to see the newly restored space?

The restoration of Apollo Mission Control is complete just in time for guests to experience the legacy of the Apollo era as the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing this July."
