To commemorate the golden anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission which saw man’s first steps on the moon, OMEGA proudly held an exhibition titled “The 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing” at the main entrance of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur recently.
Paying tribute to the historical moment on opening night were KL’s most distinguished celebrities and VIPs as well as media. Among familiar faces spotted in the crowd were Andre Amir, Siti Saleha, Tong Bing Yu, Jasmine Suraya Chin, Wak Doyok and Anjoe Koh, just to name a few.
Visitors of the exhibition were welcome to snap photos alongside the life-sized Golden Astronauts and lunar-inspired installations outside the mall’s entrance, before discovering the two main exhibition rooms inside.
The first was dubbed the Lunar room, where visitors were invited to learn the history of the moon landing mission as well as OMEGA’s role and heritage in space exploration. For a more immersive experience, space-themed music and recordings of NASA missions were played on the speakers surrounding the room.

Right opposite the mysterious Lunar room is the Instagram-worthy Space room, made up of mirrored walls and blue fairy lights alluding to stars glistening in the infinite night sky. Of course, visitors wasted no time taking selfies, joining in the awe of the galaxy while celebrating one of mankind’s greatest achievements.
