The New Jersey State Museum is pleased to present Many Inspired Steps an exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. On July 21, 1969 at 10:56:15 p.m. EDT Astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the Moon with the now famous words: “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong’s “one small step” was just the crowning accomplishment of an endeavor that goes back centuries. Many Inspired Steps tells the story of that endeavor. The exhibit is supplemented by objects in the Museum’s collection and on loan that bring this story to life and emphasize New Jersey’s connection to this historic event.

Many Inspired Steps was organized by Thomas A. Lesser (who has donated the exhibition) and is distributed by Audio Visual Imagineering, Inc. (which has donated the distribution of the exhibition) to the New Jersey State Museum.
