Wear comfortable shoes! So much to see. Allow time to see movies/shows at the IMAX theater and the planetarium, and do the flight simulators. Entrance to the museum is free, however there are admission fees for the movies and simulators. All are well worth it!

I visited Udvar-Hazy last Sunday for the Great British Fly-In, commemorating the Royal Air Force’s centennial. It’s been many years since I’d visited this museum, so it was an excellent opportunity to reacquaint myself with this first-rate collection of aircraft and spacecraft. One of the...More

If your family is into air and space then this is the museum for you. Seeing a real life space shuttle, Concord and many other space craft and planes was worth the trip. These are huge displays and the real thing.

We were in DC over break and decided to drive out to the Udvar-Hazy Center because the museums on the mall were crazy crowded. It was about a 30 minute drive from the city. I’m so glad we did because it wasn’t crowded and the...More
