There are a lot of planes, etc. here. However, they are really packed in there so if you are trying to photograph them good luck. Lots to see and do. Allow a few hours. Parking is a pain so plan ahead.

Pay $15 to park and admission is free. Bring your camera. Enter and go directly to the free guided tour. Dave is a pilot and docent. Dave showed us highlights of the museum including a Concorde and Discovery Space Shuttle. You can walk around the shuttle, inspect heat damaged tiles and view Discovery from the second floor. If you like the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in DC you will enjoy this museum. If you are hungry McDonalds is inside next to a large gift shop.

This museum is amazing! I even prefer it to the Air and Space museum on the national mall. It has the most amazing aircraft, including the Concorde, Space Shuttle Discovery, and even the Enola Gay. It's a real stroll through history. Don't miss the Blackberry (I think that's what it is called.) It flew from coast to coast in about an hour in the 1960s. I wonder what amazing feats today's secret technology is able to do. Very entertaining and highly recommended.

Annoyed at guards that said it’s unsafe to carry my tired 2.5yo on my shoulders/in my arms, I stated parents carry their kids all the time, and he said it was unsafe...so we left, depriving the other three kids in our party of the full experience.

And $15 is a rip off for parking as it’s out in the middle of nowhere.

We had previously toured the original air and space museum on the Mall in DC. This one is so much better...bigger and more to see. There is a Space Shuttle and the Concorde, inside huge hangars surrounded by other aviation relics. Truly something for everyone to marvel at. Allow yourself several hours. Have I mentioned this place is huge??
