Hundreds of planes and other flying items some miles south of IAD. Their workshop where repair of old planes are done is great, being able to look into from behind glass window.

This is a wonderful collection of aircraft, spacecraft and missiles. The top five attractions, in my opinion are the SR-71, Spaceship Discovery, B-29 Enola Gay, Concorde, and the Air Force C-121. (Full disclosure, I'm retired AF). Don't miss the Apollo 13 exhibit.

Air and space museum is a cool place to see a lot of different types of planes. Interesting to see the scale, especially with older planes and the shuttle Discovery

No there were no discounts, but free admission when a lot of museum charge both parking and admission it well worth the parking fee.
