The objects have never been on display. Armstrong's widow, Carol, only discovered the purse after Armstrong's death in 2012. At the time, she wasn't sure of what it was, although she knew enough to contact a curator at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Since then, the museum has worked on preserving the items. It plans to display them in the future. Meanwhile, however, you can get a look at a few of our favorite photos of the items, below.
