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

This museum has a great collection and the entry just stuns you... but for the non-aficionado it is not the easiest museum if you have no clue what this or that plane meant for the history of flight. And you can't go in to the...More

Our family's favorite Smithsonian is the Air and Space Museum. The Udvar-Hazy Center was new for us, as last time we were in DC they did not have this center built or available for public visitation. We loved the Udvar-Hazy Center, almost more than the...More

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).

I am catching a plane back to my country around midnight and would like to visit the museum that last day. Could I check out from mu hotel in DC and go to the museum with my luggage. Is there a place where I can check the luggage so that I can tour the museum (my kids are airplane fanatics)?

I'm not sure - it's on the grounds of Dulles Airport, but about a 3-mile drive from there to the "departure area."
