Visited the museum at Dulles Airport in early April 2013. It was a wonderful experience. Parking costs fifteen dollars but admission is free. There is an outstanding collection of aircraft from World War II through Iraq as well as an entire section dealing with commercial aviation. The fact that this facility houses the actual full sized aircraft is amazing. The highlight of our visit was being able to see the space shuttle Discovery. It was truly and awe inspiring experience. This facility is even more inspiring if one thinks about the history associated with the aircraft on display. It is relatively easy to get to by car because it is not in the heart of Washington, D.C. The entire family would enjoy this experience. Tours are given at various times of the day highlighting the aircraft on display and they take approximately an hour and a half.
