Look at this photo from 2007 at my cute kids. I got them to point at the black vinal cover over Pluto.
Look to the right. It is 2013 and all they did was replace the tape with hard plastic.
Yea, but now it is not, and the Smithsonian needs to do more than cover it with black plastic.
So the Main branch of the Air and Space museum has not really change much since I was 13 and the "Annex" by Dulles is the opposite.
Hey, it was not really free like the rest of the Smithsonian, there really was not a way to get there without driving 33 miles and paying $15 to park but so what, it was a great place to spend the afternoon. Unfortunately that wold take over 2 hours on public transit. But fortunately that keeps the less adventurousness tourists away. It a way it reminded me of the New York Hall of Science in Queens, because so many tourists wont leave Manhattan.
