The museum will host several free screenings of the film on the day of the 50th anniversary — Saturday, July 20, every hour from 11:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m..

Half a century after humanity’s historic first step on the Moon, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum is hosting a screening of Smithsonian Channel’s The Day We Walked on the Moon.

Astronauts (including Michael Collins, the third member of the Apollo 11 mission), members of Mission Control (including Flight Director Gene Kranz, Capsule Communicator Charles Duke and Guidance Officer Steve Bales) and the children of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin reveal their personal stories behind the scenes of that iconic day.

Pop culture notables like Queen guitarist and doctor of astrophysics Brian May and television personality and professor of physics Brian Cox describe where they were and what they felt during that “One Small Step.” It’s a story that ranges from the deeply personal to the grand and historic, an in-depth look at one of the most important 24-hour periods in history.
