This was our favorite museum of all the Smithsonian's available. You need to have about two hours in order to see everything and have the opportunity to experience all that it has to offer.

The museum was a great way to spend the morning. It's about 22 miles from Bethesda, close to the airport. Parking is $15 but the museum itself is free. They have an IMAX theater than you can buy tickets to watch movies, like The Hunger...More

The museum is a must-see. The actual historic air and space craft are on site: on the ground or suspended from the ceiling. A truly amazing permanent exhibition for everyone who loves things that fly. My favourite plane was an old Pan Am passenger plane...More

We trevelled through the Dulles airport on our way to DC and beyond just to see the air and space museum. We spent the whole day there. It was everything I had hoped for an more. The curators/guides were fantastic. What a history lesson!

An Uber from DC would be expensive since Udvar-Hazy Center from DC is about a 40 minute drive one way. Traffic isn't bad once you leave DC though. Have a great trip!
If I could only go to one of the space museums should I go to this one or the one in downtown DC

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).
