“Amazing and historic aircraft”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Didn't know what to expect but this was one of our favorite attractions ever. Enola Gay, Shuttle Discovery, and many, many more incredible aircraft. Terrific docents too. The place is enormous. Be sure to see the other aircraft facility downtown too. We pan to go back and spend more time here at at other Washington, DC attractions.

“Fun with family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

One of the best Air and Space museums I've been to. Its built inside the aircraft hanger and it is massive. The kids loved seeing lots of different aircraft from the gliders to fighter jet to commercial aircraft by Pan Am and Air France concord but the highlight of our trip was the Space Shuttle Discovery. My son was running from one aircraft to another impressed with each one of them more and more. Plan to spend 2-3 hours on a hot day or very cold day. The kids will make many memories and learn some fun facts.

“No place like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Tremendous display of many large planes, many military but lots of civilian too and one of the Space Shuttles. Don't miss if this is something that interests you.

Another place where one can take in all the times of flying and where we have come from in the air ways of time.
