Glad we came.

We loved this place. My husband and I have wanted to come here for awhile. There are so many things to see here. The one thing they need to do is have better eating services.

The museum is well designed and easy to navigate. However, if you have little to no interest in airplanes, this is not the museum for you. The hanger is well laid out and it is easy to see all the airplanes. There are descriptions of the airplanes along the railings and some are placed awkardly making them a little difficult... More

We arrived shortly after they opened, paid our $15 parking fee and spend hours exploring the museum. I wasn't sure if we'd enjoy it as it was more of hubby's idea as he likes seeing places where movies were filmed, in this case, Transformers. Our two teenaged daughters thoroughly enjoyed the day, taking pictures, etc. They even bought souvenirs. No... More

Very much enjoyed the Dulles Air & Space museum. We took friends there from Colombia, and they had a blast. Very educational, entertaining and historical. Also, the staff seemed to really enjoy what they were doing, providing outstanding customer service throughout our visit. I highly recommend a visit.

Stopped here with my family after reading many of the reviews and I have to say we were not disappointed. The facility is laid out nicely with a wide selection of things to do and see. I strongly suggest taking the time to go up into the observation tower and watch the planes land at Dulles. The Discovery simulator was... More

My wife and I spent the day here. There is so much to learn here. I stood there slack jawed at the Discovery Space Shuttle for at least a half hour. I spent some time looking at the Enola Gay from WW2 fame, and taking in all the history behind her. They have an Air France Concord jetliner here that... More

My wife and I attended the presentation of the last CH-46 Helicopter as it was retired and transferred on loan from the National Museum of the Marine Corps to the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Aviation Museum at Dulles Airport in Virginia. We had a great time meeting old Marines who flew or maintained the "Phrog" as it is affectionately known over the... More

My husband is a big aviation buff, and so a visit to see one of the US Space Shuttles was a must for us when we visited the DC area. This large museum is full of aviation jems. I'm not much of a fan, but I did enjoy the history and aviation planes and artifacts. Comfortable shoes and being ready... More

Don't pass by this museum. This place is terrific for both young and old. You pay $15.00/car to enter the area, no cost per person. It is hard to describe this collection. You can see the older airplanes all the way to the Discovery space shuttle. The Concord was amazing. They had interacting places for the kids. As you walked... More

I got goosebumps when I first saw the SR-71 Blackbird, and there's loads more. My other highlights were Space Shuttle Discovery, B-29 Enola Gay, and Concorde. But as I said, there's LOADS more! It's more of a general display than a museum like the other aerospace museum downtown, but I liked that, as you feel more free to just stand... More
