We went to Air and Space our first day in DC. I wish I wasn't so tired when we went because it was hard to enjoy. Also, our 3 and 4 year old became bored pretty quickly. We mostly went for my husband and our...More

Since I'm local, I like to bike or bus or combine the two for a lower cost visit. You can also take a bus from IAD if you have a long layover there - check out the Fairfax connector bus routes for Chantilly. Lots of...More

I've visited many aviation museums and this tops them all in terms of breadth of type of aircraft as well as generations and eras. I love the USAF Museum in Dayton; Duxford, USN Museum at Pensacola and many others. But U-H is the finest! On...More

The Udvar-Hazy Center is an amazing facility containing a lovingly and carefully curated collection of marvels of aviation. There is something here to appeal to everyone from pilots to engineers (my hubby) to novices (me) to kids. What a thrill to see the Discovery Space...More

It's a bit of a drive from downtown DC, but it is certainly worth the trip. If you're a fan of aviation history, you'll be thrilled by the fascinating exhibits. You'll see the 'Enola Gay', an SR-71 Blackbird, the Space Shuttle 'Discovery', a Concorde, and...More

Huge collection of airplanes, the shuttle and space exploration. My favorite part was the Ebola Gay. The 3-D movies are great. D-Day and Space Exploration Travel were good movies. We had a good guide. The tour lasted 2 hours which was long for me. There...More

It's a very long way from downtown and the transport links are sketchy but it's worth the trip. And if you think you can just Uber it out of there beware because it's going to be harder to get a ride than you think. Get...More

yes, it's now $15 to park, so technically not completely free. but this is where you see the big stuff that's too big to fit on the National Mall, like the SR-71, the Enola Gay, the Concord, and the Discovery space shuttle. the free tours...More

Our first visit to this huge, crammed to the ceilings, $360 million dollar exhibit hall. Lots of crowds, and many of the exhibits have just a placard identifying them. It would take several eight hour days to really do this much material and information justice....More

It would be a minimum of $30-40 one way. Traffic depends on day. It can take 40-60 minutes on a good day.

It depends on a few things: 1. How important is it for you to see a space shuttle? The Hazy Center has the shuttle Discovery. 2. Where are you staying and do you have a car? If you're staying downtown with no car, then... 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).
