Museum Provenance

You don’t need to be an astronaut OR a rocket scientist to appreciate the Human Spaceflight exhibit at our National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center. It’s all about the incredible reality of space travel—how small the Mercury capsule seems; how enormous the space shuttle is. This spring, the newly decommissioned shuttle Discovery will be displayed. The gifts, apparel and models we offer here honor America’s extraordinary Space Shuttle history.

Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
