Great museum. Over 100 trips so far and never stale. Free parking after 4PM!!!
If you are even remotely interested in aircraft, space exploration or history visit this museum NOW! The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center houses all things aircraft and space related they didn’t have room for at the also excellent Air & Space Museum on the mall. It is a fabulous collection of space craft (and artifacts) historic planes and history. Their extensive... More
If you like aviation or science this is the place for you. From the Wright Brothers to the Space Shuttle you can get your complete fill of modern aviation and space travel all in one huge place. Bring walking shoes and plan to spend at least 4 hours to see just the highlights.
Free to enter and well worth the price!! The displays are superb, with each having extermely informative narrative boards. This is perhaps the most popular of the Smithsonian musuems and gets very busy, so just take your time, it's well worth it.
Spent a good part of a day here last week while in DC. I work on Jet Engines so I really enjoy Air Museums. This is one of the better ones that I have been to. Great selection of planes for both Commercial and Military. I really enjoyed the groupings of the planes as they were grouped in their respective... More
The best part of this museum are the simulators (which you have to pay for!) The rest of the exhibits are good but you don't need a lot of time! We wizzed through it in 1 hour - if you have teenage boys who watch Discovery Channel and Disc Science all day on TV, there is little that they don't... More
If you have visited the Air and Space museum (even if you haven't!) and want more of just plain airplanes (pun intended), the Udvar-Hazy Center is for you. It is packed full of historic aircraft and you can get so close to them that it only enhances the experience. To have the Enola Gay, an SST, and an SR-71 "Blackbird"... More
Udvar-Hazy is part of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. The collection of aircraft here is mind-boggling! Stand-outs include The Concorde, The Enola Gay and The Enterprise Space Shuttle. It's just amazing the number and types of aircraft that are in this museum as well as various aviation artifacts! That alone, is enough to rate this museum as being "excellent".... More
Excellent and, apparently, still a work in progress. Well worth the drive from downtown. I would note that the only food available here is a McDonalds that operates inside the museum-- Classy!--and charges over $8 for a Big Mac (yes, I had to look). Pack a lunch and take in all the historic aircraft--only amazing plane after another. And I'm... More
An amazing number of air and space crafts - the Blackbird and Space Shuttle are definate highlights. Not too crowded even on a summer Sunday. Kids aged 10-16 loved it.
