The Aviation Museum is located in the southwest of Washington, not far from the Parliament Building. It is free of charge. It displays a lot of valuable aeronautical equipment and some imitation models, including rockets, airplanes, spaceships and so on. It is a microcosm of American aviation and even world aviation history. Museum interactive content is also very rich, there are touchable objects, virtual flight deck, and dynamic 4D movies, all deepen the experience. It is recommended to visit for at least 3 hours. Except for the 4-day movie fee, all are free. In addition, McDonald's is very crowded. If the visit time is limited, it is not recommended to eat in it. It's basically a model, and the knowledge is very basic. Even the specific values of the first two or three cosmic speeds are not written out (I'm asking too much). As a kid, science popularization is excellent, but for those who want to see it, they still go to the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio (which has only a physical exhibition of B2 bombers, and the Wright brothers). It would be better to go to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, as the tour guide brother of the American soldier himself said in the Pentagon. And there are too many people in the restaurant who have bad breathing, and the restaurant only has McDonald's and Boston. I really don't want to eat fast food.
In 1903, the Wright brothers invented the first aircraft, the space shuttle, the International Space Station, the engine nozzle of the giant Saturn V rocket, the docking Apollo, the Alliance Flyer, the elegant Tomahawk Cruise Missile, the famous U-2 spy plane, the F-104 Star fighter belonging to NASA, the hypersonic X-15 rocket plane, the Predator UAV, the Dark Star UAV and so on. These well-known artifacts only appeared in radio and television, which are available in this place. Not only do they have, but they can also feel them from zero distance.
The National Aerospace Museum of the United States is the world's leading museum dedicated to flight. There are 24 exhibition halls, 18,000 square meters of exhibition area. It exhibits all kinds of aircraft, rockets, missiles, spaceships, and objects used by famous pilots and astronauts which are of great significance in flight history. Everyone can see it at close range. Such a precious exhibit is very rare and shocking.
The 24 exhibition halls of the National Museum of Aeronautics and Astronautics have a total area of 18,000 square meters. Each exhibition hall displays all kinds of aircraft, rockets, missiles, spacecraft, and objects used by famous pilots and astronauts which are of great significance in flight history. Except for the huge size of the model, most of the exhibits are precious or spare objects. There is no "Do Not Hand" sign on the exhibits in the museum. The audience can operate by themselves and shoot the exhibits at will. Today I went to the National Air Force Museum. From the invention of the plane by the White brothers in 1908 to the Air Force One and the Space Shuttle, there is a complete range. Feed one's sight on.
To Washington, the children named the museum they were going to. It is suggested that we should make some strategies before going, otherwise we should take a look at the flowers. The whole history of aerospace can be understood, which is very suitable for children's science popularization. The stadium is divided by time: flying objects, children's hall, aerodynamic pilot No. 1, Shenniu brothers Fokker T-2, cross-continental flying milestone a) Mustang P-51D, known as the most powerful fighter in World War II, mainly in the battlefield of Asia and Europe, plays an important role in the victory of China's battlefield b) Bell X-1, the first supersonic aircraft c) Spirit of St. Louis, the first. I find it ironic that many people sacrificed their children to enter the pavilion on this prize-winning flight and excitedly asked for a picture of the V2 rocket at the end of the pavilion. For Germany, for the former Soviet Union, for the use of V2 in the post-war and aviation competitions of the United States, it also fully demonstrates that science and technology are a double-edged sword.

The National Air and Space Museum, the largest flying Museum in the world, receives 10 million visitors a year. It serves very well. It has a map in Chinese and has seen all the important exhibits I ever knew. Including: the first human aircraft: 1903 Wright brothers aircraft Apollo 11 command module space station laboratory Apollo lunar module Boeing 747 nose human first aircraft Emilia and her LOCKHEED aircraft: in 1932 she drove the aircraft across the Atlantic alone, and later drove the aircraft across the United States without stopping alone, these two Xiang Du set the women's world record at that time. The F-1 engine on the Saturn-5 rocket used by the US Apollo program, the American Apollo spacecraft and the Soviet Union spacecraft docking model, touched the rocks from the moon, which were collected by astronauts aboard the Apollo-17-quot spacecraft in December 1972. It is extremely hard and scientists believe it has been at least four billion years. Except for the huge size of the model, most of the exhibits are precious or spare objects. In the field of exploring infinite space, the United States is far ahead of other countries... This museum is an example. And the United States is at the forefront, which is inseparable from the high-level science popularization function of museums. The Aerospace Museum is one of the most popular museums in Washington. It receives 10 million people a year. The crowding scene, suspected to return to the country. Half of the crowds are small friends from the United States. I can see all the foggy water. What can these little ones understand? Especially those babies who seem to be pushed in and carried in under two years old. These American parents led their little friends to engage in all kinds of interactions and enjoyed themselves very much. About flight, about the universe, they have the most vivid impression here, buried the seeds of exploration. This is the national science popularization in the United States, free and fun. Practical tips: (1) love science and technology, it is recommended to take 3 hours; if I do not understand the lively, it is recommended to take 2 hours; (2) the Aviation Museum is affiliated to the Smithsonian Museum Society. The Smithsonian Institution's museums provide free WIFI, which is the Smithsonian Institution's unified WiFi signal. (3) Free, front desk with Chinese maps, go to ask for them.
In so many museums in Washington, it is said that this museum is worth visiting, mainly to show the strength of space and Aeronautics in the United States, so there is a lunar landing machine as soon as it goes in, and then there are many real models of aircraft in it. The most important thing is free access, cost-effective, pause is relatively large, if you are interested, you can also play on the many simulation experience machines here. The closure time will be a little later than that of the opposite art museum.
You can’t miss it if you like space. that’s one of my favour museums in Washington DC. it’s free and good for family trip if you have a kid. :)
The American Aerospace Museum is the largest Aerospace Museum in the world, which records the birth and development of aerospace. One of the exhibition halls tells the story of the legendary flying god, the Red Baron, commander of the German Air Force during World War I. There's a copy of the plane, his uniform photo. At that time, as long as he lifted off, the two sides stopped air combat and watched his flight performance. Unfortunately, he was shot down and killed by French soldiers on the ground.
The National Aerospace Museum of the United States, located on the south side of Washington National Square, is very large with 24 exhibition halls. They are classified as : aircraft, space probes, missiles, aerospace research, planetary science, earth science, historical science, etc. The most attractive is the "Flyer 1" and Apollo 11's first lunar landing module "Columbia". People are scrambling to take photos with the lunar landing module, but they are all authentic, how rare. It's possible to have a party here.
