Easter Peeps Welcome Discovery!

Posted on Sun, March 31, 2013

Check out this fun Peeps diorama depicting the celebration of Space Shuttle Discovery's arrival at our Udvar-Hazy Center on April 19, 2012. Museum docent John Bretschneider and education volunteer Katy Bretschneider created the diorama and entered it into the annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest. Fans have currently ranked it #27 among the over 650 entries.

Congrats John and Katy on your wonderful creation, we love it!
