“Awesome!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Visited with my parents & my kids - an awesome experience! This is an excellent collection of machinery - all under the same roof. I particularly enjoyed getting to see the space shuttle & looking into the area where the aircraft restorations take place. The gift shop, of course, was a hit with the kids. I would definitely recommend a visit to this place - something for all ages!

“Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I have been to both sites - the museum on the mall & the Udvar-Hazy center out of town. I would definitely recommend going out to the Udvar-Hazy center. It is truly amazing. The best collection of spectacular aircraft that has probably ever been assembled. The SR-71 takes center stage, but there is also everything from balloon history to the Space Shuttle Discovery. I would also say to try out one of 2 flight simulator rides. They are a blast. Wear comfortable shoes, as the floors are concrete.

“The Air and space in Dulles was awesome.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The Air and space in Dulles was awesome. I only ever saw the Enola Gay in books. But to see it up close was eye opening. MOST OF ALL to be able to walk up to the SPACE SHUTTLE was breath taking. A Must see when in DC!!!!Tom B

“Fabulous Museum”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This museum is amazing. I absolutely loved the static displays. This museum has a lot of substance as opposed to many museums that have data that you could receive somewhere else. I would highly recommend it. One thing I found fascinating was the structure of the MIGs that they have. Those early planes look like they were riveted together aluminum. I've never seen anything quite like it.

The space portion is also fabulous. I loved seeing the shuttle and its presentation.

“Fantastic place”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Unbelievable range of all things aeronautical and astronautical. From the space shuttle "Discovery" to many of the earlier space vehicles. From the early beginning of flight to fighter planes only just out of service. Solid and liquid fuelled rockets, many missiles, jet engines exposed to view. Even a Concord. There is an interactive display of a space shuttles cabin. The total display is huge and very well laid out, allow plenty of time, there is so much to see. There is a.$ 5.00 parking fee per car but no entrance fee for the display.
