First solo trip places I visited - Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

After covering New York attractions here are some pics from my Washington DC Solo trip. The photologue.

Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum holds the largest collection of historic air and space crafts in the world.
As you enter the museum, one word that makes it's way out is , WOW..!!

If you love planes, aviation sector, spacecrafts and you had a dream of becoming a pilot or getting into NASA, this is the best place in the world for you.

Museum has lot of exhibitions, the key ones includes -:
1. America by Air, which shows the history of commercial aviation in the United States from airmail to airlines.
2. Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall, which holds the objects that achieved some of the major firsts in aviation 
    and space history.
3. Early Flight, where the first decade of flights are at display.
4. Exploring the Universe, which has information about different astronomical tools and how they have helped
    us understand the universe.
5. Military & General Aviation, which contains models of different fighter and commercial planes.
