After nearly ten years on display, the Missouri History Museum’s Lindbergh exhibition will close January 30, 2012. This will be a final opportunity for visitors to see the Museum’s collection of Lindbergh artifacts for several years.
“A decade is a long time for artifacts to be on display,” said Sharon Smith, curator of civic and personal identity for the Missouri History Museum and curator of the Lindbergh exhibition. “Exposure to light over time will cause objects to break down. Removing the artifacts from display and appropriately conserving and storing them allows us to preserve these priceless artifacts for future generations.”
The original Lindbergh exhibition was created in 2002 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Lindbergh’s historic flight. After traveling 2003-2004, the exhibition returned to the Missouri History Museum. Patrons have enjoyed a modified version of the original exhibit since it was installed in 2005.
