NATIONAL AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM GALLERY AND ENTRANCE CLOSURES COMING MONDAY, OCT 7
Due to the National Air and Space Museum’s construction project, the Museum entrance on Independence Avenue will close on Monday, October 7, and remain closed until 2022. All visitors will enter via the Jefferson Drive (Mall) side of the Museum.
The Barron Hilton Pioneers of Flight Gallery will close for renovation, along with the Albert Einstein Planetarium and the Museum’s main store, and Planetarium store. These areas are all scheduled to reopen in 2022. A temporary store will be open on the second floor during the construction.
A portion of the Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall will also be closed. Some artifacts have been removed from display, including the North American X-15, and the Moon rock (scheduled to return later this year). Others will remain on display but will be re-positioned within the gallery to accommodate for the renovation.
