    This is one of the more updated museums in the Smithsonian complex, though it is still a bit outdated.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.

    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

    It was a little small but it is still worth it

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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!

    The most beautiful place in the world

    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.

    It's always a shame when museums that appeal to and educate kids have such terrible, unhealthy food choices!

    Be prepared for an airport-style scan of you and purses and backpacks and allow extra time. Hang a right at the info desk on the main floor for rest rooms and baby changing area.

    My favorite exhibit is always anything space related. It's incredible that humanity has achieved that level of exploration. Here's hoping for the future!
