The museum tells the story of space exploration from the first Columbia mission through its final mission – STS-107 – when it crashed in the Hemphill, Texas area. The museum also honors the crew of Mission STS-107, who lost their lives in the explosion and crash and recognizes the efforts of those whose job was the recovery of the debris.
The 8th anniversary of Columbia’s crash
While much of the museum is permanent, many items will also be changed from time to time as they are on loan from both NASA and the families of the astronauts of the final Columbia mission.
