“A must see while in DC area! Nat'l Air & Space Museum is part of the Smithsonian.”
There is an Air & Space Museum in DC that is located alongside the other Smithsonian attractions, but the Udvar-Hazy Center is located in Fairfax,VA...just a short drive away. Parking is $10 but like the other museums, entrance is free. We went with 2 children ages 9 & 11yrs & mom-in-law. We spent approx 4.5hrs here (including a quick lunch) & could've easily spent longer!! There are continuous (free) tours that are announced throughout the day & the guides are extremely informative...we joined in & out of several tours. There is so much to see. There are also chairs nicely placed along the exhibits allowing those in your party who may need to sit for a bit, time to do so w/o having to leave the floor. There is an opportunity to have pictures taken...our cost was $25 but there were higher pkgs avail. Only drawback (so very minor) is the only eatery is McD's. Not my 1st choice but it's VERY large, able to accommodate the foot traffic & our group had no complaints. We loved this museum...a must see!
