Smithsonian Air and Space Museum


This past weekend proved an educational one for our family since during our trip to Washington DC to visit Marc’s mom, we squeezed in a visit to the Air and Space Museum in Dulles.

Visiting the Space Museum with Family

This museum dedicated to our forays into space holds a special place in my heart as I visited it with my own family in the early 80’s! I particularly remembering crunching down on the freeze-dried ice cream, a favorite of astronauts. One of the more popular places to take kids in DC, it houses historic planes, rockets and space shuttles.
