Overview

Take one giant leap into the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, on a 2.5-hour small group tour that covers the early history of flight, and the modern-day life of an astronaut. This group is limited to 8 people, and explores a collection that includes everything from space suits, to moon rocks, and a model of the International Space Station.
  • 2.5-hour museum tour
  • Learn about the history of aviation
  • See objects from the U.S. space program
  • Small group limited to 8 people
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
Make your way to the National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall, where this tour begins, close to DC attractions and public transport. Meet a guide and small group—the group is limited to 8 people to ensure a personal experience for each participant—and set out on a specially-designed route through the museum.

Start at the beginning, with the very first plane to take flight, then see the Spirit of St. Louis, which aviator Charles Lindbergh flew from New York to Paris in 1927. See Buzz Aldrin’s space suit and moon boots, the Apollo 11 Command Module, and rocks brought back from the moon landing. Learn about the technology and innovation that drives the United States’ space program, and about what it means to be an astronaut today.

This 2.5-hour tour concludes at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, where you can keep exploring on your own, or visit the gift shop to try freeze dried ice cream.

I had hoped that paying for a tour guide would get us in to a short access line. The tour guide was good. Wish we had more time.

We enjoyed every minute of our tour. Terry Gish was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable
and fun. We were all fascinated by his genius when discussing the air and space museum.
Thank you so very much for a rich experience and a great day.

Our tour guide was great! He took us through the museum to ensure we saw the places he knew would get backed up quick first, so hardly any lines. He was very knowledgeable and told us about the other air and space museum by Dulles as our son is a huge WWII plane buff. It was definitely worth it!
