We are creating new spaces for wonder, discover, and STEAM learning for millions of visitors from around the world by reimagining 23 galleries and spaces. Here's a preview of how some of the galleries will be transformed.

Historic Donation From Jeff Bezos
Supporting Transformation

The Smithsonian will receive a $200 million donation from Jeff Bezos, founder and executive chair of Amazon, and founder of aerospace and space flight company Blue Origin. The donation is the largest gift to the Smithsonian since the Institution’s founding gift from James Smithson in 1846. A $70 million portion of the donation will support the renovation of the National Air and Space Museum and $130 million will launch a new education center at the museum.
