    Get a tour with Robin Erskine. You could fill an entire series of encyclopedias with the stuff he knows. Best tour I've ever had!

    Amazing collection of air and space history, with loads of space collections from the former USSR

    The best place to share with your children - little ones and the older ones. Some of them can give you a a full tour if you take time to listen. Guaranteed.

    Don't bother to eat here! There's only way overpriced McD's, crappy pizza and some gross Boston Market. Better off leaving and coming back.

    It's always been one of my favorite museums. I'd they still have them you've got to try out the flight simulators.

    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.

    We spent whole day there! Tested all science exhibits. Rode the Gyro circle thingy! Amazing! Touched the moon rock! Was amazed at the space capsules! To think these were actually in outer space!

    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.

    The simulators might have been fun but after paying and waiting in line for over an hour they said I'd have to pay double to fly my own. Their sign says $8 but it DOESN'T say they'll pair u up.

    From a staff member: visit our information center to check available times for daily docent-led tours; experts who have first-hand knowledge of artifacts lead free tours several times per day!

    IMAX only takes cash, planetarium only takes credit card, its confusing.

    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!!

    Visit the NASA sponsored exhibit "Moving Beyond Earth" which through interactive displays and artifacts will highlight our moving into space, living and working there, and then envisioning our future.

    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."

    Really cool museum, I think we all gravitated towards the space stuff, no pun. Would've paid to see this but glad all museums are free in DC.

    Too many kids? Don't fight it, either join in or go to the native amer museum. Opt to stay and play.
