An amazing facility, built with a single donation of $46 million dollars plus a bit of change. The building is a modern work of art its self and its worth a walk around outside go back a bit and take in the whole scale and size of the buildings. The real treasure is inside as expected wall to wall aeroplanes... More

I take visitors here all of the time. It's a great Museum with lots to see. I'm always blown away by the Space Shuttle Discovery.

This is a must do! I thought a day for the boys but found myself really intrigued and interested. I couldn't believe the size of the place. It's enormous! It houses so much without it being cramped. We've been in smaller airports! :0) There is so much to see. Make sure you have your camera, as you'll be clicking away.... More

This place is fantastic. Free to get in, however, parking is $15. It's huge, the long hangers are filled with so many air and space crafts, that a fan of any era of flight will find what they are looking for. Highlights include being so close to the space shuttle, SR-71 and Enola Gay. There are multiple vantage points to... More

We had yet to visit the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and stopped in for an afternoon while in Virginia. The museum is enormous enough to house dozens and dozens of aircraft from the Space Shuttle to the Concorde. There are interesting collections and well thought out displays which will appeal to a wide range of people from children (of which... More

I have always loved the Air and Space Museum in downtown DC, so when someone mentioned this new satellite museum, I had to check it out. It is a phenomenal way to spend an afternoon, or even longer. The concept of the museum is simple, two giant hangers and every kind of flying craft imaginable. There are fighter jets, attack... More

The Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy National Air and Space Museum is a bunch of enormous hangars about an hour drive outside Washington DC in a place called Chantilly. There are shuttle buses to it from the bigger hotels and you can get to the airport from there. If you have an hour to spare before a flight out of nearby Dulles then... More

Aircraft of all types from the wright brothers to the space shuttle. $15 dollars to park but admission is free. Air craft include Concord SST, Enola Gay, SR71 blackbird, space shuttle discovery and literally 100's more.

This annex to the main museum on downtown DC offers all you need to appreciate man's conquering of flight. There is everything from early flight to some of the most significant milestones all housed in a huge facility with flight tower and simulators. My only complaint is the voice "boombox" used by the docent who led our tour. In an... More

Spent several hours touring the museum and had a very informative and enjoyable experience. There is something of interest here for almost any age-group. I enjoy WWII aviation history as well as the Cold War era aircraft and into the Space Age. Loved seeing the Enola Gay, SR-71 Blackbird, the Space Shuttle as well as many other displays of civilian...
