Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum
This museum must be loaded into this database.  It's the cream of the crop of aviation museums.  You can see everything from the wright bro's first plane to the Starship Enterprise.  It's huge and impressive - I first visited it as a child and it's one of the sparks that ignighted my passion for aviation.

 I've only been to DC via commercial flight so I cannot help you figure the best private-pilot route to this museum.  I know flying in and around DC is difficult to impossible these days.  Regardless, you should make your way to this museum sometime in your life.
