Gilbert Betancourt’s “Aer Nostrum” Airship Model, 1929

back to articles

The final scene of the classic movie, “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark” shows the crated-up, priceless Ark of the Covenant being wheeled away into the depths of a massive warehouse filled with boxes of every conceivable size. As the Ark joined the other artifacts, it became another faceless, nameless rectangle, vanishing into the vast piles of boxes. Room 10 at our Museum is nothing like that. Our small cadre of researchers and curators diligently categorize and sort vast piles of boxes, in an orderly and professional fashion. The knowledge of the curatorial team of our collection gives us proper appreciation for all those seemingly blank boxes...and we have a favorite.
