I’ve been in this museum several times. It is my all-time favorite.
On my most recent trip to DC with Mrs. viii I suggested that we stop in and have a look around. Mrs. viii is a self-proclaimed non-museum person. She did however say that she wouldn’t mind checking out a few of the Smithsonian museums just to be able to say we had been there. I told her that I had already been here before, so I’d be willing to leave whenever she would like.
Normally I consider it a great success to get her to stay in a museum for 15-20 minutes. Well, after a several hours in the museum we found ourselves listening the announcement saying that the museum would be closing in a few minutes and asking us to head for the exits. This never happens in a museum with Mrs. viii.
She enjoyed looking at the Wright Brothers display, the World War II aviation and aircraft carrier exhibits, space exploration exhibits, the UAV’s, the rockets, you name it and she liked it. This was a great museum experience for us to share.
I like the whole museum, but I was forced to choose, I would say that my personal favorite section is the space exploration section.
I’ll definitely be back to this museum someday.
