Housing the largest collection of air and spacecraft in the world, National Air and Space Museum features the Apollo 11 command module and the Wright Brothers' biplane that launched the age of aviation in 1903. View IMAX films, try a flight simulator, visit the planetarium, or just explore hundreds of air and spacecraft, plus thousands of smaller objects--including several spacesuits worn on the moon and a real lunar rock.

Such an amazing museum, even if you aren’t into planes and space. There is something for everyone here.

It had very good descriptions of spacecraft and the models were amazing to see in person. It was a pity that some parts were closed, so this review is not 5 stars. There were a great variety of instruments donated from space institutions and it made a thorough learning experience! I recommend going early for short lines at the flight simulator.
