Photos from the National Air and Space Museum

Below are just a few photos from our visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC.  This is a must  see if you are in DC.  Very well organized, taking the visitor from the very beginnings of humanities’ place in the Universe to the most modern examples of human space exploration.  We spent our time in awe and totally enjoyed every minute of the visit.  Well worth the time. 

Tomorrow the National Museum of Natural History.
