Here’s what’s inside the TSA Museum

A lot of people were surprised to learn that there’s a TSA Museum inside TSA headquarters. Here’s a look at what’s inside:


An original handheld metal detector used by TSA at Washington Reagan National Airport in 2002.


A metal detector which screened hijackers on the morning of September 11th.

This flag was flying over Terminal B at Boston Logan Airport when the airport was federalized in 2002. American Airlines Flight 11 left from Gate 32 in this terminal on September 11th.


The first uniform issued to TSA federal screeners beginning in 2002.
