There still sits a full-up Delta IV second stage on the 405 Freeway in Santa Ana California, next to the Discovery Science Center.  I'm not sure how long it will remain there though, it is looking a little tired.

S-IB-11 first stage for SA-211 at work on a better day, 55 or 56 years ago probably.  Lucky we had it that long.  Glad I got to see it, though I would have rather seen it fly.  S-IVB-211 probably still exists, by the way, at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.  The second stage on the demolished rocket display was a dummy.

 It wasn't a Saturn stage, but years ago, if you walked out of that little museum in Alamagordo and around the back, there was an overgrown field full of old White Sands test rockets and parts. Probably cleaned up now.
 
 In an unrepentant act of vandalism, I collected a leaf from each of the seven Challenger trees there and still have them in a nice cigar box.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
