In addition to museum exhibits and standard collections, the Air and Space Museum offers many other features. Visitors enjoy the realistic, 4-minute flight simulator rides. The Albert Einstein Planetarium offers virtual tours of the universe. And the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater shows films exploring the depths of space, among other wonders. The Air and Space Museum is one of the most popular museums in the District. To avoid huge crowds, get there early in the day or later in the afternoon. Also, know that there is much more than you can see in one visit. So, block off at least 2 – 3 hours to give yourself enough time to see your must-see exhibits. Note that both the Planetarium and IMAX are extremely popular. Make sure to get your tickets in advance or as soon as you get to the museum. Have a blast while you tour the Air and Space Museum.
