Tour a Replica of the President’s Plane at the Air Force One Experience

Ever wonder what it’s like aboard the White House’s iconic aircraft, Air Force One? You can find out with a visit to DC’s Air Force One Experience, located on National Harbor Boulevard. 

This museum’s signature showpiece is a replica of the plane itself, which you can explore both inside and out. Climb aboard and you’ll be able to explore the presidential office, conference room, and sleeping quarters that give Air Force One its nickname, “The flying White House.” Back out on the tarmac, you’ll want to walk around the aircraft from nose to tail, before heading back inside to learn more about how various American presidents have used Air Force One, and which important moments in American history have been facilitated from aboard this iconic aircraft. Insider tip: the tour is self-guided, but there’s a free audio guide you should be sure to request to enhance your experience.
