Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Makes Major Improvements to Historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum has the privilege of residing in historic 1929 Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 at St. Louis Downtown Airport.  The building needs constant care to remain a viable museum space, and recent improvements are going a long way to make the facility more functional and comfortable for all visitors.  Recent and on-going  projects include arranging exhibits according to progressive historic time periods, renovating the lobby and gift shop, installing new book shelves, ceiling tiles and furniture in the library, and repositioning lighting fixtures in the main-level meeting room.  The influx of many new artifacts has also given new urgency to streamlining the hangar arrangement, with greater use of available space for our visitors.  The museum would like to thank Barnes and Noble for their recent donation of a large amount of bookshelves and furniture, and the members of the museum, EAA 64 and Gateway Area Ultralight Association for their assistance in making these improvements possible.   Please consider making a generous donation to the museum’s building fund by clicking on the Support Us tab.
