Join us for a Smithsonian Channel Documentary Screening of  “I Was a Jet Set Stewardess.”

I was a Jet Set Stewardess _Smithsonian ChannelThe 1960s, jetliners changed passenger travel forever.  They also changed the lives of a few fortunate women.  Go back to this golden age of commercial flight, when pilots looked like movie stars, passengers ate seven-course meals in economy, and young, charming stewardesses became the glamorous faces of the industry.  Through interviews and anecdotes, we detail the evolution of the “air hostess,” how they became icons for a generation and why the jet set era opened new career horizons that many women could only dream of having.

The program has a run-time of 46 minutes.    It will be shown at  the top of each hour beginning at 10:00 AM with the final showing at 4:00 PM inside the Museum at our drive-in theatre.  Limited seating will be available.


Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums and other cultural institutions to provide visitors with insight and inspiration. This event represents a commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are.

The objective of Museum Day Live! goes beyond getting visitors through our doors. This effort is meant to empower and help advance the hopes and ambitions of the public, particularly middle schoolers, high schoolers, and those in their early 20’s. More than being a token field trip, museums and cultural institutions can provide that spark for young people that lives on past their visit.
