Welcome! Check out our featured DC area business Maids in Black, DC Cleaning Services.

Thinking about checking out the National Air and Space Museum? Awesome.  It’s regarded as the best aviation museum anywhere in the world.

And for good reason.  Imagine in one place you get to check out the Apollo II command module, the Wright Brothers’ 1903 Flyer, and a piece of the freaking moon.  How cool is that?

The National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC is at its core a  celebration of human achievement.  It takes you on an unforgettable journey through the history of flight and our voyages into outer space and displays the actual aircraft that you may have learned about as a kid.

Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Vega

Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Vega comes to mind.   This is the aircraft in which she set various records in the 1930s, as she became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic.

And the planes aren’t the only fun things.  Be sure to check out the interactive flight stimulator , the Imax theatre, the planetarium, and some of the other fun interactive exhibits.

If you have children, nieces or nephews, this will be a perfect addition to your list of things to do in dc.  The National Air and Space Museum is a part of  the Smithsonian, so expect awesomeness, at no cost.  Literally.

Go be amazed!

  1. I love the air and space museum! But the Udvar Hazy Center out near Dulles is also really cool and worth the trip – http://www.nasm.si.edu/udvarhazy/
