Heads up! Only 6 more days until the new Udvar Hazy center opens (annex to the National Air and Space Museum). Sneak Preview here. Official website here.

The best part is...its just a mile down the road from my office. :D Looks like some fun lunch hours ahead!

NARAM 46 participants take note...you won't want to miss this.

...one small downside: $12 a day to park! Looks like I'm going for the $50 annual pass so I can spend my lunch hours there.

OUCH! I need to wait to bring family and friends in order to justify that cost.

Is there a Metro stop anywhere close? I would be willing to walk a mile or so rather than drive-n-park.

Unfortunately, no metro stops nearby. However, they do have a $7 shuttle bus that runs from the main (and much smaller) museum on the mall to the Udvar-Hazy center at Dulles. Don't know if you'll be able to walk up from any alternate transportation (e.g., taxi, bus). I'll probably head over there when it opens next week and will know better then about the transportation and parking situation.
