Space stuff in the DMV

WASHINGTON – Are you into astronomy and space stuff? If so, you live in the right place here in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia), except for our weather, which can hide the sky for days at a time. We space and astro geeks have a true treasure trove of observatories, museums, planetariums, NASA facilities, star party locations and astronomy clubs to enjoy.

Here is my list of DMV Space Stuff. I have included links for you to get further details, and I recommend adding them to your favorites or bookmarks for reference, as things can change over time. I have tried to compile a complete listing, but if you know of other venues, please let me know so I can update the list.

NASA Facilities




Star Party Locations

See Observatory, Astronomy Club and National Air and Space listings for details.

Astronomy Clubs




I hope you will take advantage of all of these opportunities to learn about our Universe and space program. Families can truly enjoy the free or low cost admission prices and hey, these aren’t bad to use as a date or time with a special someone.
