This incredible museum is exciting for every member of the family. One could spend an entire day at the museum, enjoying the exhibits, the experiences (simulators and IMAX films), and a fabulous gift shop. I don't personally appreciate the McDonalds, but my family was perfectly fine having lunch there.

The Hazy museum is out by Dulles airport and therefore missed by most DC travelers but should never be. It is a huge open hanger full of incredibly rare and awesome aircraft. The docent, Robert, was an amazing storyteller. I could have spent the entire day listening to him. I love large uncrowded open spaces and that is what this... More

what you see there spans the entire history of flying from the simple to the complex - the exhibits are astounding - allow a lot of time - you cannot and should not rush through it

Went here recently with my Cub Scout Pack. We had a great time. Got to see some very classic aircraft and the space shuttle Discovery. The military planes were just great. Definite recommendation.

Walking through this museum is a dream. To give you an idea of the size of this place; the Concorde, a space shuttle, a 707, a B-29 (Enola Gay), an Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" are housed in this facility. Planes and satellites are hanging from the ceiling. I spent two hours and still didn't see everything. Cat walks give you a... More

The only reason I didn't give 5 Stars is the tab for parking! Even if you want to attend their Imax you have to pay for parking! However; once inside you'll find many interesting sights from planes/rockets to weaponry! The "Observation Tower" on a clear day is a must!

This one is a must for those wanting the real deal experience. I visited both on this trip. The older one has a great location but this 9ne has more cool stuff.

Emotional, educational, technological, and historical, and above all else - unique. Not to be missed, even if you have just one hour to spare there. Bring a DSLR with a fast wide-angle lens or a zoom with fixed f/4 or better, tissues for those unexpected emotional moments when you come face to face with aero/astro history, and wear comfy shoes;...
