Visit DC: Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum


While in DC we visited the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. With over 8 million visitors a year, the museum offers a variety of exhibits focusing on aeronautical and spaceflight artifacts. From jets and rockets to hot air balloons and unmanned aerial vehicles, guests will be in awe of all there is to see.


It's not everyday that most people can get up close to a fighter jet, stand next to missiles, or touch moon rock!





The kids enjoyed seeing all the different types of aircraft, and there were all sorts of hands-on exhibits to keep the kids engaged and entertained.  Through these displays they learned about all sorts of air and space scientific terms.






There were also a variety of games, simulators, props, and so much more the kids could play with while learning at the same time!
 
From the earliest types of planes, to the incredible modes of transportation used in space, it was neat to see all the different types of air and spacecraft, and learn about how advances in air and space technology have resulted in the evolution of this industry.
