The museum has a great collection of aircraft from lightweights, military planes, to the space shuttle. They are effectively displayed both on the ground and suspended from the ceiling and include the Enola Gay which certainly has a key role in history. They are adjacent to the Dulles Airport and from the museum tower can watch planes land and take-off.... More

If you are at all interested or intrigued by flight, or history, this is a must see place to visit. Very impressive and informative. Really just a "cool" place to bring kids or yourself. I have always been amazed by flight, and to see some of these plane close up was just amazing. Great time on a hot day in... More

This place is awesome and it's FREE (parking cost $15). So much better then the one in DC. So many one-of-a-kind aircraft. The Enola Gay, are you kidding me? Well, there she is. The width and breadth of the machines on display is just over the top. What I really enjoyed was how they are presented -in as used condition.... More

I'd give this 6 stars (or green circles, whatever...) if I could. Such an AMAZING collection of flying things!!!! Where else on earth can you see a SR-71 Blackbird, the Discovery Space Shuttle, the Enola Gay, a Concorde jet, the capsule Felix Baumgartner jumped from, and more? Nowhere. Better stop here while you're in the area!!! Parking is $15, but... More

Being local, we have toured this facility numerous times and always take our out of town guests. It never fails to amaze and thrill them. You know you are in a large facility when the actual Concorde and Space Shuttle Discovery do not look that large! There is an upper level balcony to walk around so you can see those... More

We really enjoyed this museum - our kids had a great time checking out all the planes and reading about them. Some of the aircraft are truly impressive to see in person and up close. The space shuttle in particular is amazing! I will agree that there aren't as many "exhibits" or organized themes here, but I thought there were... More
