“Very educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

visited with the whole family, and aside that it's free (most of the museums in D.C. are anyway) touring inside gives you lots of knowledge and information about so many things, it's worth a visit when in D.C.

“Amilia and The Wright Brothers Live”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

It's thrilling to see Amelia Erhardt's jacket and the Wright Brother's plane just a few hundred feet from a space capsule. A very fun experience for young and old alike.

“A must see-went twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

don't miss this part of the Smithsonian. Loved the Apollo mission display. Kids had so much fun. There is almost too much to see in one day. Planes and space paraphenelia of every kind. So interesting
