Take a peek ‘behind the curtains’ at the vast collections of The Museum of Flight other than what is visible in the public galleries. Curator Dan Hagedorn will describe the never-ending Collections Department quest to identify artifacts that help describe the first 100 years of manned flight: how they are acquired, added to the collection, processed and made available to researchers. These range from photographic collections of every description to textual archival documents, library materials, and an astonishing array of ‘small objects’ – which are described as “artifacts smaller than an airplane!”
