The National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. has hundreds of original, historic artifacts on display, including the Wright 1903 Flyer, Spirit of St. Louis, the Apollo 11 command module, Columbia, and a Lunar rock sample that visitors can touch.


**NOTE: The National Air and Space Museum has begun a major building renovation. The museum WILL remain open during the renovation, but certain galleries and exhibit will be closed in phases. The full renovation will take approximately seven years. Many artifacts will be moved to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly during the renovation. The Udvar-Hazy Center remains open and offers visitors a chance to get up close and personal with many planes and space artifacts.
