If you are into air & space history you may enjoy the Paul E. Garber
Preservation, Restoration & Storage Facility just outside of the
typical tourist areas of DC. It's the facility where the National Air
& Space Museum does the restoration work on it's collection. Tours
are free but you do need to make a reservation.
The website is http://www.nasm.edu/nasm/garber/Garber.html
The musuem will be closed beginning March 31, 2003 until the end of the year to move to a new facility. So, if you'll be in the area before then it may be worth a visit.
We visited a few years ago and it was interesting. We even got to see some of the Enola Gay that was being restored. Gives you a better appreciation of what it takes to get the planes back into shape to display. Lots of volunteer hours!
Enjoy your trip, Jennie in Atlanta
