At the intersection of smart and cool

This Summer, Pay a Visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Time and Navigation, Destination Moon, and Moving Beyond Earth – all the latest exhibits at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum that you probably haven’t caught yet, and more reasons to check out this free museum this summer. Plus, don’t miss Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 Spacesuit, an upcoming display premiering on July 16 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the mission. Add to their recent exhibits the permanent collections of over 60,000 air and space objects, and you have an air-conditioned haven with nearly endless artifacts to discover. 

The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum has something for all ages, including interactive installations and demonstrations, IMAX theater and Albert Einstein Planetarium, and public observatory for a hands-on experience exploring the solar system. And although the museum is in the midst of a serious renovation, the space remains open and crowd favorites will remain on display throughout the phased closures. The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum is open 364 days a year (closed December 25) from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Don’t miss the latest exhibits before another round of impressive artifacts takes their place!
