If you want to see the actual air and space artifacts, this is the place. The downtown NASM has some great exhibits and explanations of how flight happens, but the quantity and quality of aircraft here can't be beat. The place is enormous and a great place to let kids go. The biggest drawback is the $15 for parking.
