If you have any interest in aviation or space you could spend a few days here. Even my wife enjoyed it and had a good time. Of course if you have teenage boys this heaven. My son jumped from display to display and called us over in excitement. This is probably a place we'll return to at least a few... More

For aviation lovers, this is by far and away the best museum in the world! No doubt about it! The Concord, the SR-71 and the Enola Gay are amazing sights. However, seeing the Discovery, powerful and lonely as always, with the American flag behind it will give you goosebumps. What is incredible here is that all aircrafts displayed come with... More

If you love airplanes and tech stuff, I would say definitely visit at least once, especially if you happen to have children.

My family and I were visiting Virginia, and we love the Space Shuttles. With being so close to Washington DC, we decided to go see "Discovery". This museum is wonderful. We saw the Shuttle, but there are so many cool planes and crafts to see. A must visit for any air and space enthusiast. Very clean and the volunteers are... More

I visited as a chaperone for a high school band that was in town for the inauguration parade. My visit would have been given 5 stars except I had to deal with a cashier in the McDonald's that spoke English so badly you couldn't understand her as well as at the IMAX ticket counter. When asked to repeat something the... More

This is an excellent companion to the museum on the mall, with a HUGE collection of aircraft and not much of the "entertainment" aspects that are more prevalent at the museum on the mall (which is fine by me). Of course the admission is free but parking is $15 if you drive (I got there via hotel shuttle, so no... More

Plan for a full day if you want to get the full experience here. The exhibits are simply massive and have a ton of info any aviation buff will appreciate. There's a McDonald's inside the building for lunch. Admission is free, but parking is $15 (cards accepted).

While my husband attended a meeting, I went to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum only because it was convenient. I didn't think I'd care for it and my attitude was "Yes, I like to fly for travel." Little did I know how many historical planes were there - the Discovery Space Shuttle, SR71 spy plane, Enola Gay, the Concorde,... More

While visiting with our grandchildren on the Christmas Break, we spent the afternoon here. Of course, there were lots of other folks visiting as well, since school was out and it was a rainy overcast day. The place was large enough to accommodate all the folks so that it didn't feel crowded and we could visit the exhibits and stayed... More

absolutely fantastic museum if you like flying machines: unique opportunity to see many different planes engines you can spend 1 hour or the all day... Do it with a guide and bring your camera Stars are Enola Gay, Columbia and Concorde, but many other treasures AND IT IS FREE
