The museum’s Board of Directors announced its decision to move forward with a name change for the museum in June of 2015 and it’s now coming to fruition with the launch of a new website and plans for a dedication ceremony.

The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum’s new website is built to be userfriendly and enhance the visitors experience by delivering content quickly.  The experiential website was designed with the help of the museum’s advertising agency, Bozell, who studied the habits of visitor’s patterns on the museum’s old website.  “What we discovered is that guests would scroll through several pages of content before landing on what he or she was looking for,” said Deb Hermann, director of marketing at SAC Aerospace Museum.

The museum decided to redesign its website to provide a better experience for every visitor.  The new website delivers content in a “What to Do” and “What to See” format walking visitors through a menu of ideas of what they can expect when visiting the museum.

The new website, http://www.SACMuseum.org <http://www.SACMuseum.org> , is just the first step in renaming the museum.  The museum will launch an e-commerce site and change all signage in time for its official grand opening dedication ceremony.

The dedication will be held on May 21, Armed Forces Day, at 10:00 AM with a program, recognition of SAC’s 70th Anniversary, and a continental breakfast.  The museum invites the public to attend this event and help celebrate the opening of its first SAC Aerospace Museum exhibit, Strategic Air Command in 100 Artifacts.

Strategic Air Command in 100 Artifacts spans 46-years of world changing history featuring, the Berlin Blockade, Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis, and the Vietnam War.  Throughout the Cold War, Strategic Air Command (SAC) kept a nuclear WWIII from erupting, the exhibit features artifacts from SAC’s first Commanding General’s and first Senior Enlisted Advisor’s uniforms, trophies from the SAC Bombing and Navigation Competition, Soviet Union uniform and propaganda items, and much more.

Along with the museum’s name change is a new mission: To preserve the history of Strategic Air Command, the Cold War, and aerospace artifacts and to inspire learning through imaginative, innovative, and inspirational programs and exhibits.
