Among the exhibits: The Space Shuttle Discovery, the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, the Boeing B-29 Enola Gay, the Lockheed Super Constellation, an Air France Concorde, the Freedom 7 Mercury Capsule, and Charles Lindbergh’s Spirit of St Louis. There are tons of other aircraft and related artifacts, from many different... More

Awesome Museum, a Definite Must See in your visiting the area. So much more to see than the Air and Space Museum on the National Mall. SR-71 Blackbird, Enola Gay, Warplanes, Space Vehicles, and much more! Also best IMAX theater in the Region that shows Hollywood movies in the Evening. If you have any interest at all in Airplanes or... More

they do! Visuals in DC are everywhere - monuments and memorials, museums and galleries, art and architecture. It's enough to keep you busy and walking for months. You'll get to a point where you think, "that's it! I've done it all!" But until you trek out here to see this other Smithsonian, your to-see list is undone. Walking into the... More

This was our first visit here. We have visited Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio, The SAC Museum in Omaha, Nebraska and found them to be excellent aviation museums with lots of history. The same can be said for the Smithsonian at Dulles. This location is well laid out, very informative, and pleasure to visit.

Are you kidding me! SR-71 Blackbird and the Space Shuttle Discovery under one roof! Everything else, which are incredible, are icing on the cake. Well worth the drive.

Impressive display of spacecraft, aircraft, space suits, aeronautical equipment and an Imax theatre with breathtaking footage of outer space and our galaxy's planets.

The Concorde, Space Shuttle, Enola Gay, and Blackbird are just a few of the famous flying machines displayed in the museum. It is a little overwhelming and requires several visits to grasp the magnitude of the collection. It is disappointing that you cannot enter some of the planes, but that is likely impractical, especially as we prepare to privatize most... More

This museum is not to be missed. I visited the Air and Space museum for the first time with my son's 8th grade class trip. This place is massive and houses every type of aircraft! There's even a space shuttle and a rover! Lots of rockets, helicopters, engines...we'll you get the idea. The museum is clean, well lit and has... More

Udvar-Hazy has everything a plane buff would want and then some. From the earliest days of manned flight to the space program and everything in between, this museum is an experience to be had and one that won't soon be forgotten. Every display is an education. The tower is an attraction worthwhile all its own, with views of take-offs and... More

I think I shall start this review saying that I’m an aviation freak and therefore I have visited many aviation museums all over the world. I thought that I have seen nearly everything, but Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is one of the best places I’ve ever seen. There are numerous aircraft used for civil,... More
