AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This is the most popular museum in D.C., with ten million visitors per year (be warned, the throng can sometimes taint the experience, even on the weekdays which tend to be quieter than evenings and weekends). The National Air and Space Museum is one of the top things to do in D.C. if you're traveling with kids. The biggest crowd pleaser is the Apollo to the Moon gallery, which celebrates the first and last missions. You can also see Neil Armstrong's space suit, a Lunar Roving Vehicle, and an astronaut survival kit. Other highlights include famous flying machines throughout history, WWII aviation vehicles and flight stimulators. Whatever you do, don't waste your money on the underwhelming IMAX movie.
