Mission Statement

There is a need to have permanent space exhibits in the Bay Area to help educate children about the exciting history of space exploration, and to increase the public’s understanding that a strong global commitment toward future space travel is an important key to accelerating our civilization’s development.

Description

"The Space Station" Museum is a privately funded, volunteered staffed space exploration museum that is operated by the 501c3 non-profit corporation, "The W Foundation" (TWF) (www.TheWFoundation.org). TWF owns one of the largest private collections of U.S., Russian and Soviet space exploration artifacts. The organization has attracted legendary figures such as Apollo 12 Astronaut Dick Gordon, award-winning actor Bill Pullman and video game designer Will Wright to its Board of Advisors. The Space Station is an innovation in museum exhibits in that vacant commercial space is filled and the public gains a new education venue in their local neighborhood through private contributions. It is located in the Pacheco Plaza, a shopping center located in the upscale Ignacio neighborhood of Novato. Admission is Free!
