NASM’s transformation includes the reimagining of 23 galleries, brand-new exhibits, and updated presentation halls. To accurately transform the user experience, the NASM chose to install a custom K-array (opens in new tab) sound system that would create a deeply immersive and sonically impressive environment—a truly "out-of-this-world" experience for visitors to the exhibit.
