Explore the very best of the staggering collection at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC on this morning or afternoon tour. See museum highlights including the Milestones of Flight hall, Apollo Lunar Module, Wright Brothers Exhibition Hall and World War II Aviation Exhibition Hall. Through personal headsets, listen to your guide share lively anecdotes about the displays. This small-group tour is limited to 20 people (or 12 people with upgrade) for a more relaxed, interactive experience.
Meet your guide at the main entrance to Washington DC's Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and listen to a brief overview of the attraction-packed National Mall. Follow your guide into the huge museum for your small-group tour.
Covering more than 160,000 square feet (45,000 square meters), the museum holds the world's largest collection of historical aircraft and space vehicles. Since the museum can get noisy, individual headsets make it easy to hear your guide. Your informative guide helps you appreciate the significance of the museum displays with fascinating stories and makes sure you don't miss any highlights.
Learn about the origins of air flight at the Wright Brothers exhibition and about how world wars and other conflicts spurred the development of new air technology as you tour the WWI and WWII aviation galleries. Hear about how the Cold War drove the Space Race, and see the Apollo Lunar Module, several special orbiters and the Skylab Orbital Workshop.
Be prepared for a lot of walking on your tour and be sure to have your camera handy to take photos of the world-famous aircraft and spacecraft you see. Your 3-hour tour concludes in the museum so you can continue exploring its incredible collection on your own.
