WSMR Museum Closes for Renovations and a New Exhibit

By Jenn Jett, Museum Specialist

Effective 01 March 2021, the White Sands Missile Range Museum will be closed as we undergo renovations and the installation of a new permanent exhibit.

The V-2 Building and the Missile Park will remain open for visitors with base access, but will remain closed to the general public. We will still be available for staff rides and special tours, subject to staff availability. For more information on special tours, please visit our FAQ page.

In addition to a new permanent exhibit, the WSMR Museum will also be migrating its archival holdings into a new Archival Research Center. We will also establish an interactive Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) Center tailored to grade school education standards.

Below is a glance of our new exhibits and designs. Our current timeline places our reopening around June 2022. Please follow our Facebook page and website for the latest updates and progress notes as we create a world-class institution that will showcase our shared WSMR history.
