The National Air and Space Museum's Time and Navigation Exhibit opened in 2013. The exhibition explores the connection between time and place and how revolutions in timekeeping over three centuries have influenced how we find our way. The gallery is organized into five sections (Navigating at Sea; Navigating in the Air; Navigating in Space; Inventing Satellite Navigation; and Navigation for Everyone) and spans three centuries of efforts to travel on Earth and through the solar system.
