Air and Space Museum Upgrades - Work Began February 2020
The Air and Space Museum is undergoing major repairs and improvement, resulting in 60% of the Museum closed. They will complete the repairs in approximately 3-4 years, and then close the other 40% of the Museum for another 3-4 years.
Eisenhower Memorial - Work Began March 2020
The new Eisenhower Memorial will be dedicated on May 8, 2020. It’s proximity to the US Capitol and the Air and Space Museum will make it a good one to visit before or after tours of either building. It is very different in design, and will be a nice addition to the Nation's Capitol.
