Many great exhibits for American history buffs! Don't miss the Star Spangled Banner exhibit which displays the actual flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner. Huge flag and in my opinion was the best exhibit in the museum! I thought the other top exhibits were George Washington's uniform, Abraham Lincoln's top hat that he wore the night of his assassination in Fords Theater, Thomas Jefferson's desk that he wrote the Declaration of Independence on and one of the drums played for the drum cadence in JFK's funeral procession. All of the above were found in the following sections: The Price of Freedom (3rd floor), the American Presidents (3rd floor), First Ladies (3rd floor), Star Spangled Banner (2nd floor) and American Democracy (2nd floor).
