Ray Guns!

Ask an Expert Live

Presented Online

Why does the premiere museum of real aviation and spaceflight have a collection of toy ray guns? Join us on Facebook Live as Space History curator Margaret Weitekamp explains why these brightly colored toys deserve a place in the Museum’s collection.

Planning to attend in-person? Meet at the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar at the Udvar-Hazy Center.


Every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. we will go live on the National Air and Space Museum Facebook page with an Ask an Expert talk. We’ll select a different aviation or space topic each week, and a Museum staff member will discuss the history, stories, or personalities related to a specific artifact or exhibition in the Museum. Tune in on Facebook Live each week to join the talk and ask our experts questions.
