It would be at least a four mile walk along the shoulder of a highway. I would not recommend it. Check with Signature to see if they can take you there in their van. Be aware that the presidential inauguration is the next day and the FBO's might be overwhelmed during that time and might not be able to give you a ride. Other than that, a taxi or rental car might be the best option.

I'd forgotten about the Udvar-Hazy center at IAD and was thinking "Four miles to the Mall???" It's actually 2.5 miles according to the site http://www.nasm.si.edu/visit/directions_uhc.cfm . I'd recommend taking a taxi there and getting the taxi service number to have them pick you up on the way back. Dulles is not pedestrian-friendly at ALL, don't bother trying.

I am thinking of taking a day trip down there this spring, and have a few questions. I know there are 2 separate locations for the museum- The National Mall, and Dulles museum. Is one more worthwhile than the other? Can both be done during a one day trip only? Are there separate admissions, the website is a bit clunky with smaller details.

There is a shuttle bus scheduled from downtown museum to the one at IAD. I think it is/was $5 for a rt, but I may be wrong.
Last Jan I took taxi from IAD to museum and taxi driver seemed a bit put off to only go that short of a distance, so in my mind, I say screw the taxi. But as mentioned, IAD sucks for walking or any cheap way around. You would be better off going to DCA then take metro into town then shuttle out to U-H Annex.
