National Air and Space Museum

The National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall houses famous icons of flight: the original Wright Flyer, the Spirit of St. Louis, the Mercury Friendship 7 capsule that was piloted by John Glenn, SpaceShipOne, and a touchable lunar rock.

Free guided tours are offered daily at 10:30 am and 1:00 pm. Interactive activities are available for younger visitors in the "How Things Fly" gallery and Design Hangar. Visitors can also take in an IMAX movie or Planetarium show, or test out their piloting skills in a flight simulator (fees apply).

New: Audio tours are now offered for those wishing to get additional insights while exploring the Museum on their own. Tours are offered in English, French, Mandarin and Spanish (fees apply, discounts offered for groups of two or more).

Extended hours (10:00 am - 7:30 pm) may be available during cherry blossom season and the summer. To verify late hours call 202-633-1000 or check the website at

The Museum also has a second location, the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, located next to Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Chantilly, Virginia.
