* NOTE: The Museum in downtown Washington, DC is currently undergoing a major renovation of our exhibitions. The Museum will remain open with phased gallery and exhibition closures, and our tours for student and youth groups will continue to focus on the stories of aviation and space exploration. However, the exact artifacts included in these tours are subject to change. Museum favorites will remain on display including the 1903 Wright Flyer, the Spirit of St. Louis, and Bell X-1.
