    The Museum attracts more than 9M visitors annually. You'll want a full morning or afternoon in this kid-friendly attraction. Don't miss the Milestones of Flight gallery! -- Green Guide Editor

    Last time I was here, girl was talking to her boyfriend in front of the planet display and said (loudly) "wow, I had no idea Uranus was so big." And pronounced it "your anus."

    Full scale Predator drone, the Wright Flyer, and the Apollo 11 lander. Don't forget: less than 70 years separates the Wright Flyer from Apollo 11!

    It's FREE!!! So there is no reason not to visit! Need another reason? Fine ... It's educationally fulfilling, family friendly, and simply incredible! The Imax costs money, but everything else is free!

    It's a very interesting place! However, if you are not a big fan of aerospace (like me) it might be a bit overwhelming and eventually boring after a while.

    Great museum. I especially enjoyed the outer space photography section. Great work. Also be sure to take in the innovative process that's happened between the Wright brothers and modern space travel.

    In 1928, Charles Lindbergh became TIME's very first "Man of the Year." An aviator nicknamed "Lucky Lindy," Lindbergh was the first person to pilot a non-stop flight between New York and Paris in 1927.
