    Very cool museum and knowledge & friendly staff. But McDonald's? As an educational institution geared towards children, I find this incredibly irresponsible. Especially as no outside food is allowed

    This is hands down one of the very best museums in the country. The sheer size and scope of the exhibits is amazing. Great for kids, aside from McDonald's being the only food choice...

    Great museum to visit, close to Dulles airport. Space shuttle Discovery, SR-71, Enola Gay, etc. Shuttle to/from IAD airport (door 2E) every 45 min. $2 RT fare. They even have lockers for your luggage.

    If your staying down town head over to L'Enfant Plaza & take the 5A to Dulles for $6.00 each way. Get in the Dulles 2 Dulles connector for $1.00. Worth the $7.00 to see the vast collection of planes.

    Definitely a great museum to see. Plenty to learn and see. Museum is free, only had to pay for parking. But definitely worth the trip. It has items that don't fit in the DC museum.
