(KAIR)--As part of the return of Atchison's Amelia Earhart Festival, due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be a chance to see first hand the future of the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum.

According to a release, the museum, located at the Amelia Earhart Airport, "will be welcoming visitors during the Amelia Earhart Festival for a sneak peek" at the museum build. The release notes that "construction of 13 exhibits and interactive activations has begun.

The museum will be open during the festival weekend, including Friday, July 15, from 10:00 to 4:00; Saturday, July 16 from 9:00 to 4:00; and Sunday July 17 from 12 noon to 4:00.

The centerpiece of the museum is Muriel, the last remaining aircraft similar to the one flown by Atchison native, Amelia Earhart.

The festival, held each July in honor of Earhart's birth, complete with the Friday night Lakefest Concert and the following Saturday night's fireworks display, was cancelled the past two years due to COVID-19.
