From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure Tomorrowland, starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney.

What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.

You can experience the film in the Museum’s recently upgraded Airbus IMAX® Theater, featuring the new IMAX® laser projection and 12 channel sound system as well as the largest IMAX® screen in Northern Virginia.

  1. Pete

    My kids like Air and Space!

  2. Yasmeen

    My kids actually love the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. We were there recently for the anniversary of the Hubble telescope and met some astronauts. We always have a great time there.

  3. Jennifer McChrystal

    My son loves the Air and Space museum. But, be still my heart, his second place museum is the Nat’l Gallery of Art.

  4. Abid

    My daughter loves the Natural History Museum. She loves animals.

  5. Isma'il

    We love the Air and Space museum.

  6. Iman

    Does the zoo count? 🙂 We really like the Natural History Museum. I think we’ll try the Postal Museum this summer.

  7. Carrie Grimes

    My children love the Udvat Hazy Air & Space Museum for many reasons. They live seeing the space shuttle, experiencing the simulators, and have on many occasions had a chance to hear docents talk about the history behind these planes and aircrafts. Plus they like to hear about our family history – their great grandfather helped to test and pilot the Regulus middle there. For us grow ups, I love the fact it is close to home and I don’t have to maneuver as big and as many crowds as I do in the one in DC.

  8. Alexis

    My daughter loves the National Museum of the American Indian. Last weekend we watched Hawaiian dancers (per your recommendation!) during the Hawaiian Cultural Festival and had a blast! Great Rec!

  9. Jen

    My kids love air and space! We’d love to see tomorrow land!

  10. AFenia

    My son loves the Air & Space and the castle just because it looks like a castle.

  11. Her favorite museum thus far is Air and Space. Thanks for all the awesome content and giveaways!!

  12. My children have loved so many things in the Smithsonian museums that it is very difficult for me to pick a favorite one…so here are some highlights of our visits:
    Natural History museum: the geology department and the rock collection, the bugs zoo with the bee hive, the mammal exhibit and the movie with the monkey
    Air and Space museum: the planetarium, the flight simulators
    African museum: the African masks exhibit
    and in all of them the stores where they got everything from crystal growing kits to kites…..

  13. GG

    We love the National Museum of the American Indian. They always have good programming. We went to the Bolivian Pachamama presentation. My daughters are half Bolivian so it was great to show them a bit about their culture. Second favorite is Natural History for the of the gems.

  14. Jess

    Definitely Air & Space for us!

  15. steve

  20. Kara Eyrich

    My 3 year old loves tha National zoo where he goes through all the exhibits naming all the animals and correcting me. “That’s an Alpaca Mommy, not a Llama.” His favorite animals are the Pacu fish.

  25. Monique

    Both my Son and daughter just adore the National air and space museum. my son Mekhi is 7 and daughter Janiya is 9. They love the hands on so much. Anything that keeps them busy I love! Mekhi really loves everything science. So he has a million and one questions everytime we go (about 4 times a year lol). Janiya loves the store with the astronaut food. We are DC Natives and love everything DC. Thank you for your time

  26. Jackie

    My son loves the Air and Space museum, but then anything that has to do with science is a real winner. My daughter loves going to the Natural History museum and seeing all of the animals. Course recently the American Indian has been a huge draw for both. They love going into the wigwam for a movie and trying all the awesome food in the cafeteria. We will go there just for lunch and end up staying there all day. We are so lucky to have the Smithsonian to expose our kids too.

  37. Amber G

    My kids love all of them, but Air & Space might be their favorite!

  38. Jessica

    So many museums and to narrow it down to my kids’ favorite….so hard! It’s a trifecta toss up (truly) between the National Zoo, Air and Space (I personally like Udvar-Hazy better) and the Postal Museum. Now if you’re asking me what my favorite is…….

  39. Eliana Abreu

    My daughter’s favorite Smithsonian museum is the Air & Space out by Dulles.

  40. Meena

    My boys ages 10, 11 have a special bond with the Smithsonian Natural History Museum for the past 3-4 years, after watching, “Night of the Museum”. Museum visits and websites help enhance their knowledge in history and geography. We live in Northern VA and consider being fortunate for the wealth of information and knowledge offered by the Smithsonian!

    Also, thank you for putting together this mailing list. Our family enjoy spending time together and I always check your emails for new things we can experience. Sometime back you had emailed about the Laurel, MD indoor rock climbing place and we plan to take our children as a birthday gift (we do not do tangible gifts any more and believe that family activity creates lasting memories)

  41. Elizabeth

    My daughter loves Natural History Museum, National Gallery of Art and American Indian Museum

  42. Jeannine

    Both Air & Space Museums (Chantilly and downtown) are my son’s favorites!

  62. Tiffany Mayhew

    My 4 year old daughter loves the National Museum of Natural History!

  63. Kelley Hartnett

    We are taking our oldest son to DC for the first time next week, so his favorite is yet to be determined, although I will venture to say it will probably be the air & space.

  64. Mike Hill

    Favorite SI Museum is hard, because we’ve been lucky enough to have a kid who literally ‘grew up’ in SI.

    As a small child we were lucky enough to have our daughter in Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center (SEEC) which cemented her love of museums. Almost every day, she got to go American History or Natural History. These were her playgrounds, and she got used to combining learning and play.

    My wife works at Air and Space, and so her pride in the family programs that her mom creates led to Air and Space becoming her second favorite museum. But she has always been an ‘arts kid.’ So I would have to say that the Portrait Gallery / American Art are her favorites. It’s the place we go on hangout days to walk through the fountain in the courtyard and see the Indian Paintings and visit her “marble ladies” on the second floor. Ultimately, the whole of SI is our favorite, and we are blessed to have access to such a wonderful, free resource.

  65. Darla

    Postal Museum surprised us last week so I will put that one down as the kids current favorite
