I enjoyed the Air & Space Museum on the National Mall, don't get me wrong - but I think this museum is simply hands down a "DO NOT MISS". I read the negative reviews here, and wow, I think that even as a non-flyer non-pilot,...More

This one is more defined in the national air and space Museum in DC, if you're willing to take the drive it's a better experience.

You have to love looking at planes, helicopters, space vehicles and anything that flies but it is fun to see the really old planes, experimental ones and well as ones used recently. I thought the Space Shuttle Discovery was amazing to see! The kids also...More

In addition to the one in downtown DC, this enourmous Smithsonian Air & Space Museum about 15 miles west in Chantilly, VA is an absolute Must See. It is fascinating for all ages and levels of interest. In fact, the sheer size, history and scope...More

I took an Uber, it was about $75 USD each way. It took around 45 minutes. You can spend a good part of the day at the museum, I would leave after rush hour and you won't hit any traffic.
If I could only go to one of the space museums should I go to this one or the one in downtown DC

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).
