“Air related”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

It has products and models of air spaceships and airplanes in all time from Wright brothers to Apollo.

Kids are more enthusiastic about this museums rather than adults. I was under the impression that spaceships are not real! Unfortunately, there was no tour leader in this area.

There is a McDonald restaurant in this building but this is a crowded museums in DC!


There was no wifi in this building.

“Brilliant Museum”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

A fantastic museum to visit if you are in Washington with every sort of aircraft and spacecraft that every little boy (and big) will love. The museum is set up with different periods in time from the first aircraft to the moon landings.I would have gladly paid a fortune to go in and see the exhibits but its all free so just make sure you go and you will not be disappointed.

“Over Rated”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Seemed outdated and tacky. We're not huge fans of airplanes but I think other museums were much better.

“GO!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

So much history and so visually stimulating. Great job of noting roles of women and people of color who contributed to history of flight.

“If you're into air and space, go visit”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I enjoyed looking through here. I am not so much interested in air and space, but the museum is free right along the Mall, so I had to go in. I liked seeing the historic stuff, but I didn't spend more than 2 hours in there. Some people go over and over; not for me, but I'm glad I went.
