“This is one of my favorite museums. Located in Chinatown and easily accessible off the Chinatown Metro, this is a Smithsonian museum that is free to go to with thousands of portraits and landscapes from different times and different subjects with a regular turnover of exhibits. There is something new to see every time you go. ”

“Over four million people make their way to the vast National Museum of American History each year. No surprise, since the museum’s collection boasts more than three million objects that tell the American story. Among these, a few crowd favorites include the flag that inspired the “Star-Spangled Banner,” the Greensboro lunch counter, Julia Child’s kitchen, Dorothy’s ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz and Abraham Lincoln’s stovepipe hat.”

History Museum
“One of history’s most important events, and one of its greatest tragedies, is the focus of this expansive museum. Learn the narrative of the Holocaust through artifacts, videos and personal stories in the Permanent Exhibition, and go deeper at special exhibitions such as Remember the Children: Daniel’s Story, recommended for kids ages 8 and up. Admission to the museum is free, but entry to the Permanent Exhibition is done via timed pass March through August – you can reserve online beforehand. Special exhibitions do not require a timed pass.”

“Sure, you can just show up and get corralled into a "visitor center." But if you want to experience the Capitol in a real way, contact your senator's office, and arrange for a tour. You'll need to actually plan for this -- like three months in advance -- but it's so worth it. See if you can't coax them into letting you see the weird little subway under the Capitol, too. Free.”
