I didn't realize that this museum was quite so large when we made plans to go. We could easily have spent most of the day there. However, after about 3 hours, we had reached our fill of airplanes. There are several signs to read, explaining the history of planes, but maybe the free guided tour would have been a better... More

One of the best air and space museums in the world was the description, and I could not argue with that. I had a wonderful few hours here, although this place is not easy to get to from central DC. It does involve a long metro ride, followed by a local bus journey which seems to stop very often. It... More

This is such a great attraction for air and space lovers. Amazing collection of aircraft from the entire era of flight. Especially enjoyed seeing the Space Shuttle. This is a great place to add to the list of places to see while in the DC area.

We visited the museum during the evening hours as part of a business event. Visiting a museum during after hours is interesting. The tranquility under enjoyment of food and drinks was an experience on its own. The exhibits are impressive considering the historical perspective

I am sooooo blazé that I do not go to "those places" unless I am taken to. WHAT A SURPRISE. This is breathtaking. You cannot be insensitive to the Concorde; the Blackbird; THE SHUTTLE; Enola Gay.... Paradigmatic for us (US) and for the world. Please do go. All ages.

"America's Hanger" is the most impressive collection of aircraft and memorabilia that I have ever seen. The museum is best visited in the morning or early afternoon on a weekday, as I did. The crowd was non-existent, compared to the Air and Space museum on the mall. The aircraft are extremely well preserved, and the historical facts offered for each... More

Visited Udvar-Hazy again after 6.5 years and still an amazing array of aircraft. Parking cost has increased to $15 per vehicle. Space shuttle has been swapped with the Discovery shuttle now on display. Also saw the restoration hanger that I did not view before. The Enola Gay, Concorde, SR-71, first 707, and every other type of aircraft including historical and... More

Visited on a Wednesday morning and the museum was busy but not crowded. Parking is $15 but the museum entrance is free. Take a free 1 1/2-2 hr tour with one of the guides to hear details about the most important exhibits. If you want to go on you own, each exhibit has signs explaining them. Be sure to stop... More

If you are in DC area make the trip out to this museum located near Dulles Airport. We felt like this museum was the better of the 2 Smithsonian Air & Space Museums. To see a space shuttle so close up was amazing! Another highlight for our family was the Concorde supersonic jet. It's so neat that all these airplanes... More
