The Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita is celebrating its new, $120,000 Special Archive Center.
A dedication ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, with a free open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The entire museum will be open for viewing.
The 6,000-square-foot facility is the culmination of four years of work to build a space that meets or exceeds the standards of the American Association of Museums for archival storage.
The archive center will house the museum's most sensitive collections such as books, magazines, microfilm, photographs, film and other items of aviation history.
