The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force has announced its new hangar will be opening on June 8, 2016.

The hangar, which cost almost $41 million, will house the museum’s Air Force One and an XB-70 Valkyrie, allowing visitors to see these planes without taking a shuttle. Sections of the new building will also be dedicated to space travel, research and education.

According to a press release from the museum, the privately-funded project has been under construction for more than a year and new displays are being moved in now.
