"Powering the Race to the Moon" Gallery
This gallery highlights the intelligence and sheer genius of the engineers, astronauts and leaders of the Space Race era. On display, side by side, are the Space Race engines: an actual, test-fired U.S. F-1 engine and an actual, test-fired Soviet NK33 engine. We are proud to present to our visitors this most unique experience!

"This was my second trip to Stafford Air & Space Museum. The collection of NASA items and exhibits is really amazing. You would expect some things from Gen. Stafford's missions, but there was so much more. If you live in Oklahoma or traveling through via I-40, you should plan a stop. They are in the process of expanding the museum, but no real impact on the current exhibits."
