“Incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Loved seeing the first airplane among many, many other awesome exhibits! Can't wait to go back and explore some more. Definitely pack a lunch and bring it with you instead of paying a fortune for a burger.

“Just the best - especially for boys 7 and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This visit made our trip the 'best trip' ever. Couldn't ask for more. Wonder when we will get some info about the B52. Also, it would be so very nice to go inside some of these aircrafts. Looking from the outside is not as interesting for kids as it could be.
Great tours.

“Awesome Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you do nothing else in Washington DC do this! I love it, so interesting. They are a lot of exhibitions that kids would love as well as big kids. All the Smithsonian Museums are free so you've got no excuse to not visit the National Air and Space Museum. They are put so much attention to detail in every exhibit and if I make it back to Washington DC I will visit again!
