We had a very pleasant time looking at the many aircraft and space craft on display. I understand that no museum can have all exhibits but I was surprised that they did not have a DC-3. The military variant the C-47 was instrumental in WWII...More

I wasn't prepared to enjoy this museum as much as I did... thought it would be too geeky for me. Not at all. It was a fun-filled learning experience. It's a drive to get there, and although the museum is almost free, the parking fee...More

This one is more defined in the national air and space Museum in DC, if you're willing to take the drive it's a better experience.

You have to love looking at planes, helicopters, space vehicles and anything that flies but it is fun to see the really old planes, experimental ones and well as ones used recently. I thought the Space Shuttle Discovery was amazing to see! The kids also...More

the Museum is right by the IAD airport. So , it is far from DC. There is a bus that stops right at the door of the museum. I think it is number 983, but double check. The bus runs every 10 to 15 min. Public transportation... More

you can get a bus from the end of the metro line that goes by Dulles and the museum on a loop. I can't recall the bus number but it's on the museum website under the "how to get here" tab (or whatever it's called).
