There is so much to see here. Very interesting! My 9 year old loved it! We all learned a lot there. The store has some beautiful gifts in it. Something for everyone!

We got there mid-afternoon and it was crowded but we were still able to go through the museum. Loved the First Lady dresses.

I'm not even sure where to begin, there is a huge variety of exhibits and types of musuems to see, as well as gardens and the architecture of the buildings themselves. All the museums are free, and this place is the real deal with original and highly significant artifacts.

Smithsonian has a museum for everyone... The Air and Space Museum downtown is the most-visited museum in the world...for a reason...it's informative and great fun... SI has another air and space museum at Dulles... ALL SI museums are worth the time and effort...just pick one of your interest and go... There's something for everyone...
