A day well spent. We were very much impressed with the decades of aviation history displayed and was very excited to see Discovery Space Shuttle. Must visit place when you are in D.C area.

Although the SR-71, the Enola Gay and the space shuttle Discovery are the highlights and the main draws, the museum has hundreds of other less well-known but fascinating exhibits. The level of information offered on each is just right and the guided tour (which runs...More

No there were no discounts, but free admission when a lot of museum charge both parking and admission it well worth the parking fee.
