The exhibition is located in one of the museum’s three main halls and will show visitors how innovations in space technology have transformed their lives, and why it matters.
The “Raytheon Technologies Living in the Space Age” exhibition is part of the museum’s ongoing transformation of its galleries at the flagship building in Washington, D.C., and scheduled to open in 2025. The gift will also sponsor the Explainers program, the museum’s frontline program for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) engagement with visitors onsite and online.
