Image of a NASA photograph of the Saturn V Rocket.  The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum provides more information:

The three-stage Saturn V was taller than a 36-story building. It was the largest, most powerful rocket ever launched.

With a cluster of five powerful engines in each of the first two stages and using high-performance liquid hydrogen fuel for the upper stages, the Saturn V was one of the great feats of 20th-century engineering. Inside, the rocket contained three million parts in a labyrinth of fuel lines, pumps, gauges, sensors, circuits, and switches--each of which had to function reliably, and did.

Fifteen Saturn Vs were built. The Museum's collection includes three Saturn Vs exhibited at NASA visitor centers in Alabama, Florida, and Texas.
