  • Science is real folks. Free admission. Customary security checkpoint right by the doors, so be prepared to have your items scanned through. Gift shop is huge, not cheap, but you can and should find something to mark the occasion of visiting. Some amazing exhibits and some are quite big! This is where you bring your kids interested in anything mechanical. They will love seeing the amazing array of aerospace displays. I spent the time walking around by myself and had an amazing time just marveling at human ingenuity. Weekdays aren't too crowded, just FYI.

  • I love this museum! It's free, the staff is wonderful, informed, engaged and friendly, and the exhibits are fantastic. My wife and I took our daughter here (she's very young), and she loved it! I highly recommend checking this museum out. One caution: parking is either tough to find or must be paid for.

  • I've been here 4 times over the last 3 years. And each time, I've seen atleast one new exhibit and changes in the arrangement of the old exhibits. It honestly feels like you're seeing something new each time since they do a good job in rearranging the smaller exhibits up so as to not make the experience "stale" for frequent visitors. Most recently, I got to see the Mars Curiosity Rover here. It's pretty cool how the progress in America's air and space program is on display through the various exhibits, right from that first flight at Kitty Hawk. Be prepared to do a fair bit of walking, reading and spend around half a day to thoroughly go through all the exhibits.

  • Had a long layover at Dulles and grabbed a bus to check it out. This place is awesome! Some cool experimental aircraft and also some military stuff. A lot of everything, it's huge! Great place for families and kids.

  • Crowded with people but still worth visiting. Free admission. There is a security checkpoint as you enter but was quick. Impressive real-sized airplane cockpits and the front part of B747 fuselage and other old planes were outstanding. I've been here twice in last 2 years. Totally worth visiting!
