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
an atmosphere with interest. There are dark parts and unbalanced lighting of illuminations, so the pictures which are not completely satisfactory, but I’m glad if you enjoy. My hobby is modeling so the ordinary persons may feel some pictures of 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 central Washington, DC using the subway and bus. I think planning to visit directly from Dulles Airport is one of the best options. The fee is $1.75.

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 to a museum wasn’t the main purpose of this trip, so, unfortunately, I couldn’t see around a long time.
