At the National Air and Space Museum rapid changes in our world have made us even more certain of the importance of transforming how we share the amazing stories of aviation, space flight and space exploration. In 2019, we made great strides along that transformative path. We completed removal of items from the west end of the National Mall building and have gutted and begun rebuilding that half of the structure. We started fabricating our new exhibits that will reflect a broader range of stories of all people. We’ve also demonstrated the ability to take our inspiration outside the walls with our Apollo 50 celebration. Your ongoing support has allowed us to remain America’s favorite museum, and we know a brighter future is not possible without support from people like you. So, thank you, and let’s continue our air and space journey together!
