Museum Exhibits Updated, Aircraft Begin Restoration
The Gallery exhibits at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum have been updated recently to improve the layout and visibility of the displays. Curator Mike Burke has been the driving force behind improving the visitor experience at the museum over the last several years, and has made much progress in what is a constant evaluation and improvement process. The museum has recently received several excellent display cases from the nearby Boeing St. Louis facility, and work is on-going to install them in the gallery. Along with the improved gallery exhibits, the museum has re-installed the F-4 Phantom II cockpit on long-term loan, begun restoration projects for several vintage aircraft, and welcomed back the Pietenpol home-built aircraft restored by EAA Chapter 64, which meets at St. Louis Downtown Airport as well. The museum welcomes visitors Fri-Sun 10am-4pm and groups also by appointment.
