INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A company museum at Rolls-Royce North America's downtown Indianapolis campus is getting ready to open its doors.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports the museum, which opens Tuesday, features interactive digital displays, aircraft engines from the 1920s and military fighter jets.

Organizers say the museum aims to get adolescents interested in science and technology, and maybe entice an aerospace career in the future.

This is the second location for the exhibit. Organizers hope the new location will catch the attention of downtown visitors.

Museum displays will be updated to rotate in items that do not currently fit. Digital displays will also be updated.
