The Gemini White Room

The Air Force Space & Missile Museum at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station has in its Rocket Garden the clean room from the Gemini-Titan program.

Known informally as the White Room (for the color inside, not outside), it was where the astronauts entered the Gemini spacecraft atop the Titan II booster.

The White Room was restored and moved to the Museum grounds in September 2003. Eleven years later, it slowly succumbs to the elements, absent funding to maintain it.

But you can still walk around the structure and crawl inside to take photos, which are below.
