FARMERVILLE, La. (KTVE/KARD) — From July 26, 2022, to August 30, 2022, a traveling exhibit from the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center will take place in the Union Museum of History and Art. The grand opening reception will occur on July 26, 2022, from 4 PM to 6 PM.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the images and mock-ups that help tell the story of America’s manned ventures into space that started in the early 1960s and continue today. The museum is located at 211 North Main Street in Farmerville, La.

We are so grateful to the Union Parish Tourist Commission for their sponsorship of this exciting exhibit. Local support helps us educate the public about America’s story, such as this history of space exploration.
