Interns and fellows attending the Morning at the National Air & Space Museum event pose for a group photo outside the Albert Einstein Planetarium.

The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum (NASM) was established in 1946. Holding the world’s largest collection of historic aircraft and spacecraft, it is no surprise that NASM is one of the most visited museums on Earth.

On Tuesday 6/21/17, nearly a hundred Smithsonian interns and fellows were able to experience NASM before it opened to the public. During this Morning at the Museum event at NASM, attendees were regaled with a half-hour live planetarium show by Albert Einstein Planetarium Technician Sean O’Brien before witnessing the feature “To Space and Back!” After the event ended, some interns decided to stay and explore NASM, while others gave accounts about their experiences at the Smithsonian thus far, which you can watch here.
