The National Air and Space Museum was founded in 1946 under the name National Air Museum. The first major artifact added to the museum’s collection was the biplane used for the Wright brothers’ first successful flight in 1903. In 1966, the museum began collecting items from NASA missions as well as more historical objects, and its name was changed to the National Air and Space Museum. The museum moved to the Mall in 1976. Because the museum on the Mall was able to display only a small part of the collection, a second facility was opened in 2003 at Washington Dulles International Airport, just outside the District of Columbia.
To protect the occupants and assets of the National Air & Space Museum, Commercial Security Window Film and Impact Protection Attachment Systems were installed to mitigate against damaging bomb blasts and other high-impact events.
The National Air & Space Museum is located at 600 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20560
