    Iba algo decepcionado por el tamaño del lugar pero al ver el avión de los hermanos Wright se cumplieron mis expectativas, sólo por eso vale la pena la entrada.

    Probably 2nd most popular Smithsonian.Free to public, but IMAX costs $12, but significant discount if you get Smithsonian membership which is only $12 for whole family.Check out the Flight Simulators.
