Washington D.C. Day 2
Location: Natural History Museum, Washington D.C.
Time: Plan 2-4 Hours- Depending how much you want to see
We are big museum fans, particularly the ones that are done exceptionally well. One of the best parts of D.C. is visiting the Smithsonian Museums with some of the most interesting pieces of history, cultures, and people- and all for free!
Our first museum was the Natural History Museum.
It was really cool to see some very ancient fossils, bones of various creatures, and to read the scientific evidence telling the story of each.
A surprising favorite? Seeing how the human body has adapted over time to various climates, elements, and through natural selection.
Seeing the Hope Diamond was really impressive too!
When we hit the top floor we were pleased to see two of my favorite things to study while in elementary school- mummies and dinosaurs! I loved seeing all these, and loved seeing all the families teaching their kids about these things too!
