Such a great way for a family to spend an afternoon. The exhibits are well done and is easy to get around. There is something for every age. I spent an afternoon here and it was not crowded. I also enjoyed the 3D D-Day film...More

Staying in McLean, VA, for our DC trip, we took the Metro and then a public bus to the door of this fantastic museum. Free entry and no parking fee that way. We'd always wanted to see it, having enjoyed the one on the Mall...More

Where has this museum been hiding? I'll tell you.....at Dulles Int'l! There a lot of who do not make frequent trips into DC because of traffic, tourists, chaos, etc. If you love, even like, aviation you must see this museum. An original SR71, shuttle, and...More

First time to this particular Smithsonian Museum, and like the others, very engaging and educational. Great historical display with such a wide variety of flying machines. The Discovery Space Shuttle, SR71, Enola Gay, the military helicopters, and an early vintage Pan American plane were among...More

If you think at all that this might be interesting then don't think about it anymore and just go. It's the most comprehensive display of aircraft I've ever seen. From the beginning of flight up to a space shuttle. Balloons and rockets included. Military, commercial,...More
