Driving in from West Virginia I had heard this place was amazing and worth seeing so we decided to go on Monday and it was insane. The amount of air and spacecraft in the building was amazing and it's layout was well done. Seeing the...More

Great seeing air exhibits up close. Wonderful guides help explain things and displays are user friendly.

It took us four hours to cover it. More spacious in its layout, it suggests a more relaxed study of the history of flying. Many military planes "dangle" from the awesome building housing an impressive collection. Flight fanciers will not be disappointed.

Any visit to DC should include a visit to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum both downtown and the one out at Dulles/Chantilly. There is so much to see that this second building was necessary. WWII planes, the original Kitty Hawk as well as...More

This was one of our favorite stops on our visit to DC. Many historical aircraft under one roof. If you have to choose between this site and the one in downtown D.C., choose this one. Parking is $15 but admission is free. Well worth it!

This is a great museum, perfect for anyone who loves aviation. It's huge, so make sure you have 2 - 6 hours to spend there! I would definitely go again.

After a week in DC visiting the many museums, we decided to make the trip to Chantilly on our way home. There was no disappointment. This museum actually had a smooth flow, unlike the majority of Smithsonian museums. Seeing the Blackbird, Space Shuttle Discovery, and...More

the Museum is right by the IAD airport. So , it is far from DC. There is a bus that stops right at the door of the museum. I think it is number 983, but double check. The bus runs every 10 to 15 min. Public transportation... More

It depends on a few things: 1. How important is it for you to see a space shuttle? The Hazy Center has the shuttle Discovery. 2. Where are you staying and do you have a car? If you're staying downtown with no car, then... More

you can get a bus from the end of the metro line that goes by Dulles and the museum on a loop. I can't recall the bus number but it's on the museum website under the "how to get here" tab (or whatever it's called).
