Enough interactive for the kids with plenty of interesting sit down stations to grab a 10 min break for those who need it.

You are exposed to the history of aviation from before the Wright brothers to the latest in aviation. All this is free other than the IMAX that is there.

If you or your entire family need a boost in your confidence in our nation and it's ability to rise to meet extraordinary challenges, this is a must visit. Both the technology and personal stories of those that have defended our nation in the air are inspiring. I encourage you to not only pay attention to the exceptional exhibits, but... More

If you into real planes, this is the place for you. Goes from some of the early Wright Flyers to stealth aircraft with everything in between; WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf, etc.

One can spend a whole day at the National Museum of the U. S. Air Force. I have found that volunteers give tours. When you visit you should take one of the tours. You learn so much more. Then go back through the museum. You will learn much more.

This place is huge, it's hard to explain just how large it is because it feels like you walk forever. I like how you can take your time and read the history of each plane and the events that surrounded them. We have gone dozens of times but I'm not sure I've been able to read about every plane yet.... More

This is for the very first time I have visited a museum where they display the actual things in this case the original plans. My family enjoys the whole things, and for our children this place is educational. For sure it is not enough to see the whole thing and read the information board in one day…… fantastic and it’s...
