National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center

“I feel like a kid in a candy store”—that’s what one young visitor said as he walked into the Boeing Aviation Hangar at the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. No matter which location you’re visiting, it’s hard not to be amazed.

Located in Chantilly, Virginia, the Center’s vast exhibition space displays the iconic giants of aviation and space exploration, including: Space Shuttle Discovery, a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, an Air France Concorde, and the B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, and spans from 18th Century early ballooning to the record-setting high-altitude free-fall jumps of recent years.

The Museum is also a working restoration and conservation center and visitors can see the projects underway in the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar.

Open daily from 10 am - 5:30 pm. Admission is free, but timed-entry passes are required and may be reserved via the Museum's website. Face coverings must be worn over both the nose and mouth by visitors over six years, and are recommended for those between two and five.

At this time, the restaurant, IMAX Theater, and simulators are closed. Tours and educational programming is currently suspended.

Parking fees apply. Bus service is also available from Reston and Dulles Airport via Fairfax Connector.
