Visitors to D.C. must go out to Dulles area and see Udvar-Hazy! If you enjoyed the Air&Space Museum downtown, then head to Udvar to see the real aircraft. This is a great part of the Smithsonian experience - one not to miss. Don't be put off by the parking fee - pile everyone into one vehicle and enjoy the museum... More

Spent the day with the kids in this beautiful museum. Really enjoyed the observation tower. You can listen in on the air traffic controllers at Dulles and watch the planes land. There is alot to see in this museum. We're going back in May. A+

My son loves air & space museum & we have been to several but he said this one is one of the best. If you go, make sure you see the space shuttle, Enola Gay & the restoration hanger. Its nice because it really does captivate you with all of the airplanes hanging from everywhere. Don't miss the plane that... More

Challenger and Enola Gay on display as well as tons of others from an early Wright prototype to World War fighters, early spy plane (gotta listen to the guide for this one - a true engineering genius!), to Satellites. All ages, sizes and shapes - amazing aviation history. Tours are given regularly, ask at information desk, or listen for announcements.... More

It is a huge location with an amazing amount of aircraft. They have a Space Shuttle along with recovered space crafts from from prior NASA generations. Plus Rockets galore.... More

So DC you go and get facts and get overwhelmed with crowds, in Chantilly you see the Actual space shuttle and war planes you've only read about in history books. It's not as easy to access since i don't know if there is any public transportation. So you definitely need a car to get there. The museum is free but... More

We had five full days in DC and knew a visit to this museum would take up the entire day. We were ambivalent. However, since we were in DC Apr 5-11, 2017, the week before Easter, the other museums on the Mall were very crowded. So, off we went. The website's directions for the Metro & Bus were excellent and... More

We took two days to take everything in. It was about 7 years ago since we had been here the first time and breaking it up into two days made it much more enjoyable especially with little ones. My son is 6 and was very excited to see the space section and loved every minute of it. The restoration observation... More
