This was really one the the highlights of our recent trip to DC.
If you are driving to DC, make sure to get to this place on your way in to town or if you are already in DC, I beleive there are tour buses that will take you to this museum.
I've been to other museums and this place could easily charge $25 per person admission but, like other museums nearby this place is free. People really shouldn't complain about the $15 charge for parking.
We went on Thanksgiving Day, and it seemed that this place wasn't that busy which was great for us. This place has great opening hours, although I felt bad for everyone having to work on a holiday.
The space shuttle Discovery and Concorde were really cool to see but the best plane was the SR-71 Blackbird. This thing is a beast.
The store on site has lots of cool merchandise to purchase as well so you'll be able to buy the coolest gifts for all your friends.
