The Air and Space museum is amazing! If you are in DC must go there. You will like it so much. Good also for kids.

“Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

I didn't enjoy this museum as much as my son and husband but it did offer a great IMAX show and some of the history of early flight attendants which my daughter and I enjoyed.

“Great to visit again. (And again)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

This splendid museum hasn't lost its attraction, and it's good to see that it stays up to date, e.g. With drones etc. the space shuttle exhibits are especially moving.

“New site near Dulles Airport is a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

By far the best museum we have seen on our week long trip. Seeing the space shuttle Discovery is breathless. Amazing how large it is. Kids of all ages will enjoy the sights here. Space museum in the National Mall is also lovely, but the site near Dulles is much better.

so many things to see from the beginnings of flight. The Wright flyer is neat to see and the lunar lander, space capsules too much to mention here
