In a city of museums, the Natural History museum is the one “must see” museum that has to be hit. They just remade their dinosaur exhibit and it’s fantastic. There are things to see for the entire family.
Great museum for kids to explore. It gets crowded so reserve your (free) entry pass in advance.
Dinosaurs, Oceans, Geology, Asteroids, and a Butterfly room! I highly recommend going through the "mine" room and finding the room where the gem stones fluoresce with a black light. Also don't miss the butterfly exhibit. It is worth the wait and the cost of a ticket. The butterflies will land on…
One of my absolute favorites, particularly the marine/ocean section! Get ready to be wow-ed!
My favorite museum! In the heart of DC. A short walk to sooo many other attractions. Plus it’s FREE!
Allow yourselves plenty of time to tour this museum. It contains a vast collection of articles.

“(4.5 miles) We have probably spent more hours here than any other place in DC. There is something for everyone including hands-on demonstrations, 3-D IMAX movies ( these cost), and a McDonalds that sometimes has aircraft from the museum in their Happy Meals. Even if you’re an adult, it may be worth it to order a couple of Happy Meals.”

“This is probably the only place I have been asked to leave. My 2 year-old child snuck into a purse and decided to take a crayon to add to an impressionist painting. Before I knew it, two guards were chasing him, and I was chasing them with a stroller. The toddler could run and they never caught him as he ran between tourists and many rooms of the exhibit. The guards diplomatically suggested the Smithsonian would be better suited for us to visit instead of the Art Gallery. It’s still one of my favorite places. In summers, I took him to kiddie art classes when he was older. It’s worth it for the kids so sign up. ”
