New Mexico Museum of Space History Appoints Christopher Orwoll as Director

The New Mexico Museum of Space History has appointed Christopher Orwoll as Executive Director.

As President and CEO of the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center, Orwoll focused on expanding the role of the facility’s restoration center, and the integration of more interactive exhibits. Collaborations with other organizations included design and installation of the Space Gallery at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon; presentation of the traveling exhibit “NASA: A Human Adventure,” which opened in Stockholm; and the opening of two new galleries at the Cosmosphere: “Investigate Space: Our Universe,” and “Investigate Space: The Astronaut Experience.” “Investigate Space: Our Universe” was awarded the Mountain Plains Museum Association Leadership and Innovation Award in 2011. In addition, Orwoll was instrumental in creating “Living in Space,” a live space science program that toured more than 300 schools across the country in 2011-2012. –
