The National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center resides in western Fairfax County. This is a museum experience like no other that showcases a gigantic multi-themed hanger big enough to provide enough room for the Smithsonian to display the thousands of aviation and space artifacts that cannot be exhibited on the National Mall. The Space Shuttle Enterprise might be enough of a reason to get you through the door but once inside you’ll find an IMAX Theatre, cool flight simulators and even astronaut ice cream to please your taste buds. So whether you’re visiting to feel the excitement of seeing aircraft up close and personal that you used to dream of flying, or just trying to spark that dream inside the mind of today’s children, this is an experience that spans multiple generations.
