    Super cool & interesting museum
  • Jenna Rose R.
    Possibly my favorite of all the Smithsonian museums, as there's more interaction and the exhibits are — pardon the pun — out of this world.

    Don't miss this if you're into aviation or space. Take time to read the plaques, or join one of the free tours

    Crowded. Liked the screen to take your own choices for first flight around the world. Very good for children to learn.

    Without question this is a great museum, but if you really want to blow your mind go to the sister museum half an hour’s drive from DC - which has a complete Space Shuttle plus the Enola Gay.

    I saw a lot of swastikas 😕. Museum entry is free, but all the exhibitions cost money. It's a popular museum - lots of people - perhaps too many.

    The first gift shop that I liked in my life. Don't forget to check out the aircraft carrier exhibit. It's something you normally don't find out.

    I really like this museum, but is in desperate need of some new last generation aircraft displays... some of the current/future cockpits are from the 90’. Put some Boeing 787 displays!!

    Try to go early. It gets pretty packed in the afternoon. Great exhibits. My faves were Exploring the Planets, Amelia Earhart, and the one w/ the ISS.

    Tip: You're really hungry, but McD inside of the building looks packed with tourists? No worries, just get outside and find their food truck (right from main entrance).The only catch is 3-items menu.

    For people not over-the-top in ♥️ with natural sciences, ✈️s and 🚀s, it's actually pretty dull. This is only interesting thing I've seen and that's only because it made history ( Apollo 11👇🏻)

    In this museum you can behold some of the items that have sparked human progress in the previous century. Must see when visiting Washington.
