Join us on Saturday, April 17, between 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., when visitors will have the unique opportunity to walk through the AC-130A Spectre and learn more about the aircraft from six Air Force veterans. This is part of a new program the museum is starting to allow visitors to get an up-close look inside a different aircraft from the collection one day each month.

Visit the interactive exhibit designed to spark imaginations and inspire new generations of explorers to dream of the possibilities that lie ahead. Highlights of this exhibit include touching actual rocks from the lunar surface of the moon and the red planet of Mars; taking a spin on a centrifuge that is powered like a bicycle; and more!
A new space art exhibit hosted by the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in conjunction with the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) titled “The Beauty of Space,” will open at the museum on Feb. 26, 2021. The Exhibit, which will be on display in the museum’s Cold War Gallery, will include 49 awe-inspiring pieces in varying mediums from 20 artists.
