Hello Tom, 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

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
