Restoring every artifact. Transforming every experience.

The National Air and Space Museum building will remain open over the course of its monumental seven-year transformation. While at any given time some sections of the building will be closed, beloved artifacts will remain on exhibit. The first new galleries will open in 2022, and by the time the project is complete, the building’s exterior and infrastructure will be revitalized, every object will have undergone restoration, all 23 exhibitions will be completely reimagined, and new presentation spaces and attractions will be open to all.
