The Hall is located in the National Air Force Museum. I enjoyed looking around and reading about the different aviation pioneers. But to be honest, I didn't spend much time there as I knew how much was still ahead of me in the Air Force...More

This is a very neat area for children to learn about aviation. I learned a lot about aviation. I would recommend it to anyone with small children.

It's inside the National Museum of the US Air Force and well worth spending an hour there familiarizing yourself with the many contributors to the development of aviation. As in the larger museum there is no entry fee and the free wi-fi works there also..

Nestled inside the National Air Force Museum, it's a good stop. My favorite was taking pics with the space suit. There was a lot of information there, we didn't spend a lot of time there as there was so much to see inside the museum.
