If you want to see slice of American history and its involvement in various wars, check this out. Make sure you do a walking tour with the excellent volunteers. Check their website for various exhibits.

Seeing a "Blackbird" (SR71) that replaced the U2 in spyplanes is a must-see experience. Kids and adults must see it and recall the Cold War and that this plane is a key part of.

you can get a bus from the end of the metro line that goes by Dulles and the museum on a loop. I can't recall the bus number but it's on the museum website under the "how to get here" tab (or whatever it's called).
