While this museum is a little pricey, there is a lot of fun hands on activities and information provided. I have been quite a few times and learn something new every time! There are three floors of space and airplane information. There is even a real airplane guests are allowed to climb into and see all the controls. The fourth... More

Family went to the Virginia Air & Space Center as a part of our reunion in July! There was a TON to see. We were only there for 3 hours and I wish we had been able to stay longer. There were great interactive activities for all ages of children and adults. Would highly recommend visiting!

I thought the museum was very well done with a proper balance of interesting things for kids to do and see while not making to "too kiddy" that would bore any adults. The guides were very friendly and informative and weren't put of by having to answer "kid questions." would recommend

Almost as good as the Smithsonian in DC. Aircraft, space ships and a 3D Theater. A hands on experience for the kids. A lot to see and do.

Some of the interactive displays weren't working, which was disappointing, but the movies were excellent and worth seeing. Spent the better part of the day here.
