Seattle Museum of Flight Groundbreaking Time Changed

. June 24, 2010 . 0 Comments

The Museum of Flight has moved the time of the groundbreaking ceremony for its new Space Gallery from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 29 to enable Gov. Gregoire to attend.

The groundbreaking will still take place next to the Museum of Flight Library and Archives Building, 9303 East Marginal Way South in Seattle, across the street from the Personal Courage Wing.

As Seattle and Washington State await the decision on where the three retiring Space Shuttles will be located, the Museum of Flight is moving forward with plans to build a state-of-the-art facility that is capable of housing a Space Shuttle and other space artifacts.

Other dignitaries attending along with the governor include retired astronaut Dr. Bonnie J. Dunbar, the Museum’s CEO and Mike Hallman, the Museum’s Interim President and former President of Microsoft, as well as a number of other supporters of this exciting initiative.
