The Smithsonian continues to present the history that might be forgotten in the future generations. The Air & Space Museum provides excellent viewing space.

If you have any interest in History, flying or you just want to see the vast collection of planes from the decades that have passed or that are current in the space history. I have attached photos of the historic Enola Gay and the stunning Blackbird !!

I have never seen hangers as massive as the two that form the base area for the plane collection.

"Wow" or "stunning" are probably the most appropriate words to describe the display.

This museum is a part of the Smithsonian complex. We've previously visited the original Air and Space Museum, so we were excited to come here. We weren't disappointed! Yes, some of the displays were covered in plastic, as they were being renovated/worked on. But we still saw some amazing items including the Space Shuttle, a Tom Cat fighter, a Blue Angels jet, and a Coast Guard chopper, to name a few. Interspersed among the planes were plenty of informative displays full of original items. There were hands on stations for the kids. Be sure to go here!

Our company decided to have our christmas party at the air and Space museum, i had no idea what they would be like, well let me tell you, it was like going to Disneyland for the first time! As soon as you walk in, you just open your mouth and say “wow”. We were in the middle if the gall with all these planes floating on the air! It was by far my best Xmas party ever

One of favorite parts of the Smithsonian Museum complex in greater Washington DC area. Larger then the original air and space museum downtown, it has the last space shuttle, an air traffic control center, hundreds of planes and an imax theater. Free admission and $15 parking. If you have a long layover at Dulles take an Uber and enjoy yourself for 2-3 hours. Restaurant under renovation

Well, we would have given this 6 stars if 20% of the exhibits had not been covered with plastic due to a renovation.

We would give it 7 stars if more detail about each of the exhibits was available on Udvar’s website. As it is, many of the exhibits are so interesting that the existing descriptions leave you wanting more.

On a brisk Autumn Saturday morning, our group of five adults and four small children had no problem parking and moving around this spacious, well-organized facility.

TIP:

- Masks are required, but if your forgot yours they will provide you one.
- There is a parking fee but no entrance fee. IMAX theater presentations and simulators are extra.

This was a very interesting museum with airplanes from all over. The history of aviation was included with planes or examples. The Enola Gay was there as well as a Space shuttle. I would allow a couple of hours to really see everything.

Lots of planes, rockets, missiles and cut away motors and propulsion systems. Imax theater had several different films about flying and the latest Bond flick. Only negative was that many of the planes were covered in clear plastic while they were doing roof repairs, so you could see but not a clear view. Also, no restaurant on the grounds

Perhaps one of the best aviation museums in the world, here you can see many aviation legends like the enola gay, the blackbird, all sorts of fighter jets and even a space shuttle. Along with missiles, drones, satellites, old and newer aircraft, this is heaven for aviation enthusiasts. It is nothing compared to the other branch in the national mall in dc. Located right next to the dulles intl airport, you will either need quite a bit of time with public transportation or take a cab of lyft service. It is definitely worth the visit and dont forget to include a stop by at the old control tower to see the actual dulles airport activity. Free entrance!

A vast collection of aircraft and space vehicles and rockets. This is definitely geared to adult aviation fans. Theaters were not offering any films on this Tuesday. Subject experts did some remote conferencing but not much engagement.

We were disappointed that after traveling almost two hours by metro and county connector bus to get here late morning, there was no food at all available onsite. We left (very hungry) by 2 pm to head back to DC’s mall. They are selecting a new vendor apparently, but an appalling situation for a remotely located Smithsonian facility!

Spent the day here almost from open to close!
Beyond words to say the least.
Everyone was nice we encountered.
Mask usage was great ...only saw one person without one and one person not wearing his right.
Don't forget to go in the observation tower.
