An exclusive, tourist-free event in the most popular museum in the world, celebrating Yuri’s Night, and if that wasn’t enough, Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey had its world premiere right here in Washington DC 50 years ago. It’s like all the stars have aligned and my god, it’s full of stars. (that’s a 2001: A Space Odyssey joke)

What’s Yuri’s Night?
Yuri’s Night is a global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space. Events are held around the world in commemoration of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human to venture into space in April, 1961. More details:
