UDVAR-HAZY CENTER SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL AIR AND SPACE MUSEUM in WASHINGTON, DC (PART 1)

I visited that museum in May-2016. I show the pictures have you taste an
atmosphere with interest. There are dark parts and an unbalanced lighting of illuminations, so the pictures which are not completely satisfactory, but I’m glad if you enjoy. My hobby is modelling so the ordinary persons may feel some pictures the strange angle. There are also pictures which were out of the focus. The information posted on this page is current as of May 2016. Please check the latest information as needed, such as access methods and exhibition contents. It’s in the State of Virginia in the next, not Washington DC correctly.

I remember it takes about 15 minutes from Dulles Airport to this museum.
It’s much more time around 90 minutes from the central Washington, DC using the subway and bus. I think the planning to visit directly from Dulles Airport is one of the best option. The fee is $1.75.

Only route983 goes to Udvar-Hazy Center. 。There are many buses on weekdays and weekend. Since the hotel was the Hilton in the center, the way to the hotel was a long way by train and bus.

The bellows are the information map. Anyway, there are many exhibitions and it was a big satisfaction for me. In the main building of the National Air and Space Museum in the park at the center,there are many but have a lot of panel exhibitions. Moreover, it’s quite crowded. I prefer this Udvar-Hazy Center.I think I don’t get tired even if I’m probably here for 1 day. This time was the travel with my wife, who is not a modeler and military items and airplane fan. So it’s impossible for 1 day. A visit in a museum wasn’t the main purpose of this
trip, so unfortunately I couldn’t see around a long time.

The rocker who can leave the big baggage. About 85 cm of height, about 30 cm of width and about 40 cm of depth. We didn’t use the large suitcase, so we left it completely. If it’s a too big suitcase, it would be difficult. Require a quarter coin, refunded later.

(18-May-2016)

I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
