Apollo Skylab 3 command module is on display at the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, located at the Great Lakes Science Center on the lakefront in Cleveland. The photo above is from the 1990s when the NASA Glenn Visitor Center was located at the NASA Lewis Research Center, later renamed the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field, after astronaut and Senator John Glenn. The visitor center was moved to the Science Center in 2010 after being closed in 2009 in an effort to cut the public relations budget. While that reduces access to the center by the general public, it vastly improved public access to the exhibits.
