Photo gallery: Closing in on our reopening

As you can see from our stream of blog posts, the museum has been an unbelievable beehive of activity during the past few weeks as construction walls come down, spaces are finished, and exhibits are installed.  View our latest slideshow to take a peek!  Highlights include the new atrium with its dramatic abstract flag, welcome center, grand staircase, and the unveiling of the Star-Spangled Banner in its new home.
