American Space Capsules

Over the years, I have visited a number of air and space museums around the country. At some point, I decided to start taking my picture with famous NASA space capsules. What you see here is a chart of every single one I've visited to date, along with ones that I plan to visit. I've since expanded that list to include not just NASA projects, but all American launched manned spacecraft that still exist. I hope to one day have a photo with every single spacecraft on this list, all but one of which are located in the continental US. The only inactive one outside of the US is Apollo 10's capsule in the London Science Museum. A few are still active and in space, and some do move from museum to museum, so don't take this as up to date.
