Where can go to I touch something that's been to the moon?

Where can I go to touch something that has been to the Moon and back? Is such a thing even possible? There must be artifacts spread around the U.S. Where's the nearest one to you (and where are you)?

Back about a decade ago, I happened to be watching in early evening as the moon went from thin sliver to complete disappearance. It was one of those unexpected and somewhat wondrous moments of my life (due to many circumstances of the time, and the unplanned coolness of it). I'd like to see it again. Is there some schedule for me to tell when this is going to happen again visible from my area? [more inside]

From the Moon to the Earth

Hypothetical from Moon-orbit to Earth-orbit question. I already know about free return trajectories, but what if something went wrong and your ship (currently orbiting the moon) didn't leave lunar orbit at the point it was supposed to? What might happen? [more inside]
