Visitors to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., will soon get a fresh look at the profound effect aviation and spaceflight have had on their lives.
The newly renovated Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall is set to open Friday, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the museum. The reopening will kick off with a ceremony at 8:30 p.m. and an overnight celebratory event.
Along with new additions to the exhibit, the hall features a new digital component called Go Flight, allowing visitors to delve deeper into the artifacts through an interactive wall, a mobile app and the museum’s redesigned website.
The hall’s renovation, two years in the making, was funded by a donation from Boeing.
