  • Museum well done with several historical aircraft’s that is worth seeing. One draw back is you couldn’t really get close for a better view, all were roped off with lots of aircraft in close...

  • Not sure how anyone would give this place anything less than 5 stars across the board. Awesome experience for kiddos and adults alike. The number of artifacts is mind boggling, especially considering....  more

  • Amazing experience. Impressive number of aerial vehicles. Good information and very friendly and helpful staff. This was our first visit so we went through rather quickly but were blown away by the sheer number of planes, helicopters, missiles, satellites, jets, and pretty much anything aviation-based. I liked it more than the Air & Space Museum in DC but probably because I've been to that many times in my life. Three highlights for me personally were the SR-71 Blackbird, F14 Tomcat, and Space Shuttle Discovery. I felt like a kid again seeing those up close and personal. We warned the kids we'll be back but this time mom and dad are reading all the plaques and info boards. No downsides, everything was fantastic.
  • This place was great. Before we went in, my five year old son did not want to go (he was just not interested in visiting a museum that day). Once we got him in, he LOVED it! Airplanes, helicopters, even a spaceship! This place is cool. There was a lot to see. You can see it all from ground level if you want, or you can go up and see everything up close from the elevated platforms. Bathrooms were plentiful and clean, there's a gift shop and a cafe. We made a really nice day of it.
  • What a wonderful experience. You can get so close to the aircraft here. So many historic and awe inspiring pieces. Very easy to navigate. Interactive displays. Virtual reality rides were a bit pricey. $15 for parking. I prefer over the downtown air and space
  • Love this Museum. Free to visit, just pay for parking, $15. Lots of things to see and my kids love it. They get so excited when they see these real life airplanes and space crafts. Highlights are, the Space Shuttle, Black Bird, Concorde and many more. There is something for every age. The hosts are very knowledgeable. If you stop by the stands, they give you incredible information. Highly recommended.
  • Awesome museum! Admission is free yet parking costs money. We arrived and met family there fairly close to opening, and no issues walking around and seeing the planes, jets, and spaceships they have on display. Really the only thing that had a huge line was the observation tower which offers 360 views of the nearby airport and surrounding area. I was more than okay skipping out on this. My personal favorites to see up close were the blackbird and the discovery space shuttle. What was really cool about these two were there were some experts on deck via video conference where you could ask any question you might have. All in all well worth a visit if you find yourself in the DC area. 'Til next time, cheers!
