National Air and Space Museum Partially Reopens in October


The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum is reopening its west end on the National Mall following renovations on Friday, October 14. 

The museum, which has been under renovation since 2018, closed its doors last March for further rehabilitation.  

Upon the reopening of the building’s west end, visitors will have access to eight new and renovated exhibitions, the planetarium, museum store, and Mars Café.

“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

“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. 

Exhibitions opening on October 14 are as follows:
