Take a leap into the unique collection at the National Air and Space Museum, covering the United States’ world famous space program. The National Air and Space Museum doesn’t just cover extraterrestrial exploration. It covers everything from the early history of flight to the Space Race and moon landings. You’ll see the first plane to take flight as well as the Spirit of St. Louis, the first plane to cross the Atlantic. Discuss Amelia Earhart, the iconic female pilot who famously disappeared while trying to fly around the world. Check out Hubble space suits, and lunar modules while learning all about NASA and the United States’ space program. The two story back ups for the Hubble telescope and the early space station Skylab dominate your field of vision and since the originals stayed in space, this is the best way to get up close and personal! Find out what it's like to be an astronaut today with one of our expert guides – there’s even freeze dried ice cream in the gift shop to get the full experience. Discover the history of the world’s foremost space program and the technology and innovation that made it possible to land a man on the moon.

Learn about the first president, George Washington, while viewing his sword and discover how Hollywood has helped shape this country when you check out Dorothy’s ruby red slippers.

In my 86 years I have been to many museums and have listened to many guides, some better than others. But yesterday's experience with Brenda was easily the most informative and enjoyable museum visit of my life. She is extremely knowledgeable, articulate and considerate. I would do it again in a fainting heartbeat.
Great guided tour

Brenda was great.
She has many stories that she weaves together to bring the Museum to life and adds an extra dimension to the tour.
We really enjoyed it.
It’s a shame much of the museum is under repair, but still better to see it now while you can.
Can highly recommend it.
