The air and space mueseam in Chantilly is so much better than the one in downtown. There is something for everyone, from military aircraft, like the sr-71 blackbird and Enola gay, to civilian aircraft like the Concorde. The space section is also spectacular. Around the...More

Prepare to pay for parking, it isn't cheap but for what you experience it's worth every dollar. (33 at the time of our visit.) The museum itself is free, and packed with terrific activities and experiences. The first thing that struck me when arriving was...More

This museum has many unique aircraft and space equipment. We really enjoyed the area where you can look down to the restoration area. There are films here but we did not watch any. Wonderful museum!
