This is an excellent museum. A must to see as it has many many varieties of planes and space shuttles etc. Very worth while

Great collection of planes, very well displayed. They have a Concorde, Enola Gay, Discovery space shuttle and many more. Don't miss the observation tower (closes 4:30, i.e. an hour before the museum closes). Kids enjoyed it very much. A neat place to visit.

Amazing to see both the Wright brothers flyer, and actual Apollo lunar lander. Well worth it! You'll need at least a few hours to do the place justice.

Do the observation tower first as it gets crowded. The kids enjoyed the simulator ride. My space buff teen was completely impressed with the space shuttle and the numerous other exhibits. Prepare to spend the whole day here and you'll be on your feet almost...More

I've been to museums of different types all over the world and this is one world-class museum. If you are even remotely interested in aviation, this is a must-see. Parking is $15 but well worth it when you figure that the museum itself is free....More

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).
