The hangars are enormous, housing the Enola Gay, a Concorde, an SR-71, and inummerable other cool items. If you have a long layover at Dulles, go there. You won't regret it. I've even seen evidence of a shuttle bus running between the airport and the museum.
After an early morning training flight at HEF, I arrived at the museum as soon as it opened and wound up spending the entire day there.
I also watched a few arrivals and departures on runways 19L and 19C at Dulles from the observation tower.
