- We are staying open: The Museum will remain open during the project. Construction will be divided into two phases, so there will still be plenty to see and explore on your visit.
- There's more to see at our Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: Have you been to our Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia? We’ve already begun putting aircraft from our collection on public display for the first time at the Udvar-Hazy Center in preparation for construction (like the Sikorsky JRS-1!). There will be engaging programming and other must-see artifacts to check out throughout the project.
- We're sharing new objects and new stories: There are new stories and new objects on the way. You will see Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit after conservation (thanks to #RebootTheSuit!), a return of the Command Module Columbia, and even new artifacts, like the historic F-1 engines recovered by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
- Our digital platforms bring the collection to you: Whether you’re in the Museum or sitting on the sofa back at home, you can explore many of our 60,000+ collection objects online. From apps to behind-the-scenes blog posts to 3D tours to new resources created just for educators, the history of aviation and spaceflight is at your fingertips.
