Stafford Air & Space Museum

Weatherford, Oklahoma

The Stafford Air & Space Museum is named after celebrated astronaut Thomas P. Stafford, who was born and raised in Weatherford, Oklahoma. The museum houses an impressive collection of aviation and spaceflight artifacts. Since it became a Smithsonian Affiliate in 2011, it has exhibited an array of artifacts on loan from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum—such as a Gemini flight suit and the actual flight pressure suit Stafford wore on the Apollo 10 mission during the first flight of the lunar module to the moon.
