The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is the nation’s only congressionally chartered museum in its field and a Smithsonian affiliate. Originally known as the National Atomic Museum, it was established in 1969 as an intriguing place to learn the story of the Atomic Age, from early research of nuclear development through today’s peaceful uses of nuclear technology.
"Dynamics of Flight" is a special exhibit that displays the advances in aircraft design and technology from the Wright Brothers to the Space Shuttle. Experience your own flight in a computerized simulator in order to understand the concepts of pitch, roll and yaw. "Dynamics of Flight" will give you a new appreciation for aeronautics and the incredible changes this industry has made to our world. The exhibit runs through the end of the year; the usual admission rates ($8 for adults and $7 for youth and seniors) apply.
