Amazing to see both the Wright brothers flyer, and actual Apollo lunar lander. Well worth it! You'll need at least a few hours to do the place justice.

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).
