Museum of Flight

I think I am going to have to save this one for when my father comes to visit as the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum is one of his favorites on the East Coast. The Museum of Flight tells stories of courage through a collection of 28 fighter aircraft—in a setting that will simply amaze you. In the steel and glass Great Gallery, the history of aviation soars past, with dozens of full-size aircraft flying in formation six stories above. Sit in the cockpit of a real SR-71 Blackbird or F/A-18 Hornet. Board America's first presidential jet—Air Force One. Climb aboard the sleek Concorde. Step back 95 years in the magnificently restored Red Barn®, birthplace of The Boeing Company. From hands-on kid's workshops, to fly-ins, to interaction with the people who made aviation history, The Museum of Flight has something to offer everyone from the dawn of aviation to the Space Age.
