Presenting artifacts and recreations connected with early flight and the adventures in the sky and outer space, the National Air and Space Museum has expanded to a second location near Dulles Airport in addition to its presence on the National Mall. As with most of the Smithsonian's museums, it is free to visit and supports ongoing research both into the history and future of flight and planetary science.
