National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center, Dulles

A big drawback of having a conference in the Hyatt Dulles,  Washington, is that it takes over an hour to get into the center of Washington DC by public transport.

Luckily the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum has an annex close by, at the Udvar-Hazy Center.

This has a huge selection of historic and interesting exhibits covering flight and space travel.
