UNVIE’s Neil Armstrong Replica Spacesuit Statue is Back in Vienna!! 
June 27, 2022

In September 2019UNVIE had the honor to be selected as the only non-U.S. based recipient of a Smithsonian Air and Space Museum Armstrong Spacesuit Statue donation.


The statue – an exact replica of Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit created using 3-D scan data, was touring Central and Eastern Europe, where space fans will have the opportunity to view it and engage with its interactive features.


It has now returned back home to Vienna and can be found at the Space Corridor at the Vienna International Center. 


When you visit, don’t forget to snap a selfie with the statue, and share it with @USUNVIE on social media using the hashtag #Apollo11Selfie, letting us know what space exploration means for you!
