They had an awesome amount of aircrafts in the building and they had planes that were worth checking out. I like seeing the Concorde in person as well as the F-35. The coolest thing we saw was the...

This was the highlight of our Washington visit. The displays were fantastic. We enjoyed the space shuttle, blackbird, and all the aircraft on display. It wasn't very crowded, which made it a enjoyable visit. Enjoyed it more than the National Air and Space Museum, which was very crowded!

You will be inspired on our country ability in Aviation. It is out of the way in Chantilly, but worth the drive. We had an excellent docent who flew during the Vietnam War. It was great to see the SR-71, the Concorde, the Enola Gay, the Wright plane, etc. etc. I would say better than the Air and Space in... More

Went about 5 years ago. If you like aviation, then this is a mecca. Many of the most famous planes in history.

This museum was awesome. Only around 20 miles outside of Washington DC, in the Virginia Suburb of Chantilly. The museum only charges for parking. Many of histories most interesting aircraft, from the dawn of flight through present day are waiting your visit under one mammoth sized hanger. I highly recommend taking one of the many free tours. Not being an... More

While taking in as many Smithsonian's as possible in D.C. we decided to go a little further and see what this air and space museum had to offer. It was well worth the 30 minute drive! Our 2 - 14 year old boys loved all the different planes and the Discovery space shuttle. One of the boys favorite planes was... More
