I spent almost 6 hours here, it felt like 2, I was totally blown away. Discovery, Blackbird, Enola Gay, Concord and many more pioneering, historical, exhibits all under one roof. I was also highly impressed by the free guided tour I went on. I learned...More

This was a great visit - we enjoyed seeing all the big planes and the space ship. It was an awesome collection of planes, and we really enjoyed it! There is a McDonald's there in case you want to stop for a more affordable lunch,...More

The museum is not to be missed. All ages will find interest in this well laid out and interesting museum. Unique perspectives on the aircraft from above and below. Try to catch one of the 3D education movies, too.

If you are planning a trip to the DC area, and have an interest to air and space history, this is well worth looking into. You could plan ahead and fly into Dulles airport early, and spend a whole day at the museum, and still...More

This museum is part of the Smithsonian, but located about 45 minute drive out of Washington – over towards Dulles airport. As we didn’t have a car, we caught an Uber which cost us around $50 each way. However, it was worth the expense. Here,...More

As you enter, you pull up to a ticket machine, take a ticket and pull into a large parking lot. Buses come in and out so you should be fine.

Honestly, you can see pretty much everything in three hours. The Enola Gay is pretty awesome as well.
