Updated: Nov 23, 2020

Friday November 27, 2020 - January 03, 2021
Drive-through event


The Armstrong Air & Space Museum will inaugurate the holiday season by illuminating their grounds with a vast array of festive and colorful lights. The exhibition contains a multitude of space-themed displays made from tens of thousands of lights, with prominent works including a twenty-foot-tall Saturn V rocket and a giant Apollo-era astronaut saluting he American flag. To help promote social distancing and accessibility this year, the Display has been modified into a drive-thru event! Holiday lights will be spread periodically throughout the museum parking lot to allow guest to experience the lights from the convenience of their own vehicles.


The Display officially kicks-on at 7:00 p.m. on November 27th, when the lights are turned on for the first time during the "Grand Illumination" event. The museum itself will be open as part of the event for guests to shop or visit from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
