The rockets, missiles, and spacecraft of the National Air and Space Museum make up the definitive collection of artifacts of the U.S. Space Program Through a unique agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, in effect since 1967, the National Air and Space Museum has become sole custodian of the historic American relics of space exploration. These relics are displayed, loaned to other museums, or preserved in storage. If you see a genuine U.S. spacecraft in a museum anywhere in the world, it is almost certainly from this collection!
