Neil Armstrong's Moon Landing Artifacts Are on Display at the Smithsonian

His helmet and gloves will be on display until July 2017.

The fragile artifacts were last seen by the public in 2012, following Armstrong’s death. According to the museum, pieces of the spacesuit “are rotated on and off display based on their individual needs as determined by Museum collections specialists.” Components from the famous space flight are kept out of public view for preservation reasons. The gloves and helmet have been recently conserved, thanks to a successful "Reboot the Suit" Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2015.
