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, an 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.

Free guided tours are offered daily and were recently rated as one of the best things to do in Washington, DC by "Washingtonian" magazine. Self-guided audio tours are also available in English, French, Mandarin, and Spanish (fees apply).

The Museum is also a working restoration and conservation center and visitors can see the projects underway in the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar. They can also watch airplanes land and take off from and land at Dulles Airport, and get a 360-degree view of the surrounding area from the Donald D. Engen Observation Tower.

Open daily from 10 am - 5:30 pm. Closed December 24. Admission is free, parking fees apply. Bus service is also available from Reston and Dulles Airport via Fairfax Connector.
