Human Space Flight
Human Space Flight Excellent NASA site. Put cursor over gallery and many human space flight options appear (Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Apollo-Soyuz, Skylab, Space Shuttle, Space Station). Extensive archive of images of past missions with descriptions. Video and audio files also available.
Apollo Image Atlas This site, put out by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, is about as extensive as possible. It carries most of the images taken during the missions, and many images are indistinguishable from the next as they are taken right after each other. It is a thorough database if that is what you require, however if you are looking for the most famous pictures of the missions, it is easier to find them on the other two sites listed here.
