Official Museum Statement:

Over the past several weeks we have been working with interested investors to encourage purchase of the Space Museum, the Wings & Waves Waterpark and some of the surrounding land. We have just learned that the Michael King Smith foundation has made a decision that will delay that resolution for now. The museum, a separate 501(c)3 charitable organization, will continue to operate and to conduct the events, programs and experiences planned and supporting our mission. 

We trust that the foundation, created to support and grow the Museum and its mission, will work quickly to find the best outcome for the Museum. The Museum staff, volunteer and board members remain focused on our services and the amazing experiences, events and activities that are in place. Join us for the Year of the Hero at the Museum and Waterpark! Throughout the year we have programs and promotions to celebrate accomplishments, big and small, that have impacted science, flight and everyday life. Are you an Evergreen Hero? Come! Be Inspired!
