    Why you're here: SR-71 Blackbird & Space Shuttle Discovery. These titans are in line with the entrance so you'll find them first. Stick around and the other, less famous craft will reward you as well.

    Largely a great museum. The huge exception is the Enola Gay exhibit, the plane used to drop the A bomb, which still refuses to discuss whether it was right to do so. Go after 4PM for free parking.

    Went to watch Jurassic World in IMAX but before the movie toured around the museum. It's so cool to see all the planes and space craft they have on display.. And it's FREE!

    If crunched for time, skip the observation deck and go marvel at all the planes and, of course, the shuttle. Staff is knowledgable and friendly! They helped me locate my Uncle's plane.

    Come here early to get your IMAX tickets and get good lighting for photos. Also, Dulles airport is nearby so it's a good place to plane spot as well.

    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
