The National Air and Space Museum is embarking on a major renovation of its Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall. The central exhibition space that greets visitors entering the Museum has looked much the same since it opened in July 1, 1976. Thanks to a generous donation from Boeing, all of that is about to change. The new Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall will be completed for the Museum's 40th anniversary in 2016, and will change the way we tell the many stories of how aviation and spaceflight have transformed the world.
Among the changes planned:
A team of Museum staff is working on re-envisioning and renovating the Milestones exhibition. Our aim is to make your experience at the National Air and Space Museum even more educational and inspiring. Do you have questions? Ask us!
