    Two rotating exhibits that are often interactive. Great for all ages! Really! Check the calendar to see what's on display. And don't miss the photo exhibit.

    Only has 2 awesome exhibits so this should take 30 minutes tops. $15 entrance may be a little step.

    Exhibits change but I assume whatever you choose to visit would worth it! It’s not a full on museum though! A half an hour exhibition related to the topic yet informative.

    The National Geographic Society formed in 1888 for the advancement and diffusion of geographical knowledge. You'll find artifacts ranging from expeditions to temporary exhibits on the world's cultures

    WHO IS GIVING THIS PLACE HIGH REVIEWS?! Spend $15 on 5 min to see Wikipedia articles propped up. It's 1 floor which goes from one building to the next with a sad courtyard across.

    This is a really palatable museum experience, with a lot of fun snippets of knowledge. And a huge gift shop.

    The photo exhibit on animal conservation is excellent. Be prepared to wait in line for the Indiana Jones experience.

    This is another one of DC's most under-rated gems! Saw the terracotta warriors here and always have a great time whenever I revisit!

    If visiting gecko exhibit, check Tokay Gecko display to see time display for next feeding. Live crickets are dropped in every 30 minutes.
