    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.

    The planetarium shows are worth the cost, and the rest of the museum is free so why not? Great for a rainy day.

    Not accessible for the visually impaired. Everyone offered a Braille book but that does nothing. They need to get audio Tours that are accessible. The ones they do have are difficult/disappointing.

    Amazing! Definitely make a plan to visit the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in addition to the museum, well worth it and you could easily spend a full day at each.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    This is one of the more updated museums in the Smithsonian complex, though it is still a bit outdated.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

    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.

    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.

    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 :)
