National Air And Space Museum to Make Free Entry Passes Available 


The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum said it will release free timed-entry passes online, starting Wednesday, September 14. 

The museum, which is located on the National Mall, is scheduled to reopen the doors of its west end to the public on October 14, with eight new and renovated exhibitions, the planetarium, museum store, and Mars Café.

It is required for visitors to hold a pass to enter the museum, regardless of how old they are. You can reserve free timed-entry passes, after their link becomes available on the museum’s website next week.

Timed-entry passes allow visitors to enter the museum for up to one hour after the time stated on the entry pass. 

Each visitor can reserve up to six passes or use the group reservations page to reserve for a group of 10 or more people. 

Additionally, there will be individual passes for six-week periods in the coming months. 

The museum has been under renovation since 2018 as part of a $1 billion renovation project and closed its doors back in March for further rehabilitation.

“This is one of the most exciting times in the National Air and Space Museum’s history,” Chris Browne, the museum’s John and Adrienne Mars Director, said in a release in early August.

“When we open the first reimagined galleries, we hope all visitors are inspired by artifacts on display for the first time, favorite icons of aerospace presented in new ways and diverse storytelling,” he added.

The following exhibitions are opening on October 14:
