Fifty-four truckloads of manuscripts, film, and more moved from cramped quarters at the Garber facility to the archives’ spacious new home at the Udvar-Hazy Center. (Eric Long)

The Archives’ Big Move

Fifty-four truckloads of irreplaceable aviation history make the 35-mile trek to the National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center.

Even during the extensive preparations and the move itself, the archives remained open. During the months of packing, archivists in the reading room of the Museum on the Mall assisted more than 180 visiting researchers.

Visit airandspace.si.edu/research/arch/ to learn more about the archives, including hours of operation, the scope of its collection, and how to volunteer.
