The best museum


Enterprise

Maybe the best museum in Washington, DC (and certainly the most under-appreciated) is the National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center. While it has various educational attractions like its downtown sibling, the Udvar-Hazy Center is more like an art museum for aircraft and spacecraft, packed with everything from the earliest attempts to build aircraft to the Concorde, an SR-71 Blackbird, and the space shuttle Enterprise. It's out at Dulles airport. When you go there, be sure to take the 90-minute guided tour, which is like a docent's tour of an art museum.
