    A must see when in Washington. The exhibits include the Apollo 11 capsule and the Spirit of St Louis. Parking nearby is a real problem, so use a cab or public transport.

    My all time favorite museum by far! If you've never visited it... go in right now and be sure you have 4-5 h to tour it properly!

    Planes all around, and that's great. Tons of people make it hard to move and get to see anything, though. Try to get on the flight simulator, it's the best!

    Impressive! Don't miss the simulations!

    This is one of the more updated museums in the Smithsonian complex, though it is still a bit outdated. We all enjoyed the exhibits and had plenty to do there.
  • Tony P.
    This place is great, highly recommend to anyone visiting DC. Anyone who's an airplane or Spaceflight junkie can spend all day here.
  • Rachel S.
    My son loved it. He spent the entire week at the space camp. He really enjoyed the interactive exhibits.

    Amazing Museum for anyone who loves aircrafts, airlines and astronomy
  • Christopher P.
    This place is in need of renovation as it's exhibits are old and building ancient. The info is entertaining but it gets crowded very quickly
  • Jacob L.
    It was a little small but it is still worth it
  • Jaspio H.
    Fantastic overview of the history and innovations of aviation and space exploration. Exhibits are fairly adult but there are plenty of activity stations to keep the young occupied.

    Don't miss Abel, the monkey we sent into space, stuffed and in his space gear in the moon exploration section.

    Simuladores interactivos.

    You could spend a week in here! If your limited on time snuggle up to a person who sounds like they know what they're talking about and go for the ride.
  • Lauren A.
    Lots of big things to explore and look at. Spent 80$ in a free museum for 3 people. Takes less time then the art or history museums.
  • Putu K.
    The number of historical aircraft and rockets is mind-boggling. So many informative interactive displays although some were under repair. Very crowded though. You really need a full day.
  • Camilla H.
    This was probably one of the best museums I've visited. It is for all ages and the admission is free! I can recommend going here especially if you are into planes, like me :)

    Major renovation ongoing and many exhibits have been removed. However still worth a stop!

    Wright Flyer is a must see.

    IMHO, best Smithsonian museum. Lots of cool things to see. My two teen girls & wife were less into it, but I (Dad) thought it was awesome.

    If you're able to visit the Museum next to the airport, don't forget to go! It's bigger than the one in DC downtown, there are more historical planes, Concorde, Discovery, Enola Gay, Blackbird, wow!

    you will need at least half a day to do this justice

    The most beautiful place in the world
  • Jacqueline L.
    You should definitely take a ride in the flight simulators. Very realistic! Not good if you get dizzy easily. You are doing barrel rolls and trying to shoot down enemy planes.
