By far my favorite museum to visit. Admission to many of the museums in DC are free, which is great to save on the budget. There are also some great sections in this museum where you can interact with the science.

This is a great place for families. A favorite visiting as a kid and it still gets me. All of the neat aviation engines and aircraft are pretty cool. And as an adult, they have some great showings on the IMAX theater inside.
