    Was pretty neat. Way less crowded than the smithsonians but there's also an entrance fee. It is pretty pricey, so only go if you're really interested.

    Great spot, but give yourself more time than you think. It takes at least 3-4 hours to scratch the surface here. Your ticket gives you 2 days of admission though so you can revisit tomorrow!

    Because of the great view from the outside deck (upper floor), this is one of the few indoors museums you want to go to on a really nice day!

    Downside: one of the few great museums you have to pay to get in. Upside: a really great museum (a MUST for news junkies or politicos) PLUS a GREAT view from the outdoor deck upstairs

    If you are visiting DC, visit this museum early on as your ticket is good for 2 days (and there is a lot to read!) Check out coupon sites ahead of time for discounts
