This one is a must for those wanting the real deal experience. I visited both on this trip. The older one has a great location but this 9ne has more cool stuff.

The only reason I didn't give 5 Stars is the tab for parking! Even if you want to attend their Imax you have to pay for parking! However; once inside you'll find many interesting sights from planes/rockets to weaponry! The "Observation Tower" on a clear day is a must!

Emotional, educational, technological, and historical, and above all else - unique. Not to be missed, even if you have just one hour to spare there. Bring a DSLR with a fast wide-angle lens or a zoom with fixed f/4 or better, tissues for those unexpected emotional moments when you come face to face with aero/astro history, and wear comfy shoes;...

I have been many times to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in DC--today was the chance to visit the newer (about a dozen years old) Chantilly facility. Here they have the Ebola Gay--which dropped the first nuclear bomb on Hiroshima, a retired Concorde, the Space Shuttle Endeavor, and much more. Ran into a couple of Delta pilots--talk about a...

Great place to visit out of the busy D.C. area. Lots of beautiful restored aircraft and history for each one. Lots of friendly tour guides around to answer any questions. Definitely a must see if you are in the area.

Always fun to come here. Also see the the addition out by Dulles Airport. Great exhibits (Although they do seem dated at times). Could be more interactive for kids today. Always free admission!

Wonderful displays of the history of avaiation. You and your family could spend hours viewing all they have to offer. Excellent guides that explain in detail about the planes and their history. I would definitely recommend a visit to this museum. Spectacular!! If you can make sure you attend the Air and Scare event in October.

A good museum to enjoy and spend about three or four hours of your day. If you like planes then this is the place to be, I particularly enjoyed the shuttle exhibit and the control tower replica where you can watch the planes land at Dulles International. Do not forget to watch a movie at the Imaxx theaters. Recommended.

The exhibit hall has something for all to enjoy - educational and imagination inspiring. Time stands still and history comes alive.
