One of the best field trips we took this school year was to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. The museum is a companion to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. This museum is packed with science and airplane artifacts that kept my children completely engaged. I loved that there were full size airplanes and a Rocket for kids and adults to view up close and personal. Being able to learn about the vehicle wonders in the sky fascinated me and my family.
Did you know National Family Month is from May 12 to June 16. In celebration of your family we encourage you to do an activity together. Similarly, my husband, daughters, and I traveled to the Udvar-Hazy Center where we learned about the air-crafts of the past, and the IMAX movie we watched while their gave us insight in the air craft capabilities that are to come.
Here are some of my favorites from the Air and Space Museum’s extensive collection:
