Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: An Accessible Treasure Trove of Aviation History – Visit Fairfax Blog

At the free Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA, aviation buffs, NASA fans, and those who love letting their inner child take flight can spend hours exploring and learning about the over 3,000 air and space artifacts on display in this unique and wheelchair accessible museum.

The lesser-known but equally impressive sister site of the Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., the Udvar-Hazy Center is home to some of the most recognizable and record-breaking aircraft and spacecraft in history in a visually dazzling, hangar-like structure. Aircraft at the museum include an SR-71 Blackbird, Enola Gay, and the Concorde. The crown jewel is the Space Shuttle Discovery. The center has everything from aircraft from the early days of flight to recent military helicopters and planes.

Until next time!
