The presenter explains how the Lunar Module descended.
The Eagle Has Landed
Relive the highlights of these first steps around a full-scale model of the “Eagle” Lunar Module of Apollo 11: the lunar footprint, the salute to the flag and the first scientific experiments carried out by men on the Moon!
Cancellation possible in case of rain or strong wind. Duration: 20 minutes.
Relive this historic moment
Meet in the gardens of Cité de l’Espace to find the life-size replica of the Lunar Module and take part in the “The Eagle Has Landed” presentation.
Several times a day, a presenter invites you to put yourself in the shoes of the first lunar pedestrians by geographically repositioning the highlights of July 20, 1969:
- The exit of N. Armstrong from the Lunar Module and his first words before setting foot on the Moon
- The installation of means of recording and broadcasting the feat
- The first extra-terrestrial scientific operations: lunar footprint (soil test), laser reflector, particle collector and collection of lunar samples
- Description of the environment and living conditions that day on the Moon
- The presentation finally invites visitors to take Armstrong and Aldrin’s place to immortalise this moment in front of the American flag.

What is the Lunar Module
This spacecraft, seven metres high, allowed American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to land on the Moon in July 1969 and stay there for 22 hours. That was over 50 years ago!
