Between December 8th 2008 and February 14th 2009, portions of the Modern Flight Hangar (MFH) at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force will be closed for painting of the ceiling.
This gallery is dedicated to the Korean and Southeast Asian conflicts and access to the Kettering Cold War Gallery and the Space and Missile Gallery through the MFH will not be restricted.
Check the Museum's web site as to which portion of the MFH is closed prior to visiting.

I asked that of one of the volunteers when I was there on Monday. She said it'll be dark like the others. It allows for more dramatic scene lighting, better photos (less background clutter) and most importantly, lower electricity costs.

Here is an update on the partial closing of the Modern Flight Gallery.
The section of the gallery that contains the aircraft and exhibits relating to the Korean conflict is blocked off. There is a strong paint odor in the gallery and in the hallway leading to the gallery. So if you are allergic to paint odors, I would recommend not going into that area of the museum.
