Great collection of aviation history, rendered by the people who make flying fun -- seasoned pilots!

Many marvellous steps, leaps and bounds of technology all under one roof. I was captivated by the pilot's recounting of tales related to each plane, the tour took around 2 hours... read more

Many marvellous steps, leaps and bounds of technology all under one roof. I was captivated by the pilot's recounting of tales related to each plane, the tour took around 2 hours but never was there a dull moment. Fantastic that this is a free musuem providing retired pilots with a job, letting them continue to have a connection with their... More

What can one say about a museum that displays the shuttle Discovery, the original Boeing 707 prototype (the Dash-80), the Enola Gay, a Komet, and Freedom 7 II? And much more! The sheer number of rare and special aircraft and spacecraft in the collection is amazing. It is a tribute to the Golden Age of Aviation and Space and a... More

I've visited this museum a number of times for different reasons, I used to bring our toddler here to burn off extra energy and learn something in the process. We watch movies in the IMAX theater, we attended a corporate event here, visit on the yearly "become a pilot day" (SUPER fun bring the whole family!). The museum is free... More

We stayed overnight near the airport as a precaution for our international flight and so we could visit the nearby Udvar-Hazy Center. Due to flight changes, we ended up only having a couple of hours available for a quick dash through the museum. Well, it was so worth it. Just seeing the Enola Gay, Space Shuttle Discovery, the Concorde, the... More

Parking was $15 and Admission is free. The Museum has amazing exhibits and displays . Also, there is an IMAX theater, McDonald's, Observation Tower and a good Gift Shop. Seating is ample throughout the Museum as are bathrooms. Standing next to the Shuttle as well as the SR-71 Blackbird and the Air France Concord, realizing their size, left me stunned.... More

We visited this museum on Dec 5th, 2016 on a typical rainy "museum" day :):). The experience was really enthralling !!! The museum has different sections that showcase the airplanes of different eras and of different types viz. World War II, Cold War period, Commercial airplanes, Space shuttle etc. The collection is really magnanimous and educative. The collection also includes... More

On this latest visit to the Uday Hazy center we went on a tour with a docent who spent a lot of time telling us about the SR-71 Blackbird, the B-29 Enola Gay, several early plane designs, the Air France supersonic transport, and the Discovery space ship. There is an absolutely mind boggling collection of ancient and modern aircraft on... More

The place is simply awesome. Nowhere else you'd be able to see as Space Shuttle or the Blackbird. Let alone one close to the other. And that's only the beginning of it...

Having visited the original Air & Space Museum on the mall many times in the past, I assumed the museum near Dulles Airport would be at least as good. I had heard lots of good things about it. Admission is free - although parking is $15 - as are the guided tours. We arrived early and got on one of... More

We had been to the Air and Space Museum located by the National Mall, but this had a whole different perspective. We enjoyed viewing the larger aircraft mainly the Space Shuttle and the Concord as well as others such as the Enola Gay. (Hint: Go to the second floor and use panoramic if you want to take a photo of... More
