Washington, DC Destination Guide
National Air and Space Museum
Washington, DC CVB
Touch a real moon rock, see the Spirit of Saint Louis that carried Lindbergh across the Atlantic, or view the actual Apollo 11 lunar command module that took astronauts to the moon. The country's most popular museum is so jam-packed with stuff for space buffs, it can take a full day to navigate. (The IMAX film and planetarium show sell out fast, so buy tickets as soon as you arrive.) "Trekkies" in the family won't want to miss the Starship Enterprise model used in the original Star Trek TV series. Estimated visit time: minimum two hours.
