Udvar-Hazy Center

The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center also called the Udvar-Hazy Center, is the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (NASM)’s annex at Washington Dulles International Airport in the Chantilly area of Virginia. When you enter the facility you are welcomed with a second story view looking into the main hangar and Space hanger with a grand view of the SR-71 Blackbird and The Space Shuttle Discovery. 

The Udvar-Hazy Center displays historic aviation and space artifacts, especially items too large for the National Air and Space Museum’s building on the National Mall, including the Enola Gay, an Air France Concord and many other historic planes and artifacts.

EEOB

The Eisenhower Executive Office Building

Just west of the White House sits this National Historic Landmark, The Eisenhower Executive Office Building.  It was for years the world’s largest office building, with 566 rooms and about ten acres of floor space. Many White House employees have their offices in the EEOB including the Vice President of The United States. The building—originally called the State, War, and Navy Building because it housed the Departments of State, War, and the Navy—was built between 1871 and 1888 in the French Second Empire style.
