Blast off!!! National Air & Space Museum – Washington, DC
January 2, 2017
You know I love flying in airplanes, so a visit to the National Air & Space Museum while in Washington, D.C. was the perfect way to spend a cold, blustery January day.
The museum is part of the Smithsonian Institution and is completely free. It’s very hands on and there are lots of videos to watch too. There is a planetarium and an Imax theater! (Get your tickets early or you might miss out.) There is so much to see and do that I know I missed a few things. I saw airplanes, missles, satellites, rockets and even the Wright Brother’s flying machine.
The National Air and Space Museum is a great place for children of all ages (and parents too). There is a food court if you get hungry. We did not eat there, but I did see that there was a McDonald’s, so it’s kid-friendly. There is an overpriced gift shop, which can easily kill your budget so it’s best to steer clear unless there’s something special you want.
The wrap up: The Roadtrip Kid gives this museum TWO thumbs up! Be sure to add a stop at this museum to your to do list if you are heading to the nation’s capital. You won’t regret it. I promise.
Will we be back? Yes
Tip: Summer time is crazy busy, it’s best to visit during off-peak seasons.
