While you might not immediately think of the Turks and Caicos Islands when you think NASA and John Glen, the island played a major role in the space program, with NASA affiliate bases operating on the island. In fact, when John Glen returned to Earth after orbiting in space, he first went to the Turks and Caicos base before heading back to the US.

Exhibits

You can expect to see a proud collection of memorabilia and artifacts from the island's space days. From pictures to old equipment, you will be able to explore and inquire about the program's past.
