Take Flight at the National Air and Space Museum

This must-see Smithsonian Museum is only two miles from our hotel that's conveniently located in central DC. Part of the permanent exhibition are classic airplanes, such as Charles Lindbergh's "Spirit of St. Louis" and Orville and Wilbur Wright's 1903 "Flyer." You'll also get to see the command module "Columbia" from the Apollo 11 moon flight. Equally cool things to do include IMAX films, planetarium shows, and viewing stars through the observatory telescopes.
