    If you only have time to do one Museum, this is the one to go to. If you have time the one at Dulles is even better!

    It's the most popular museum in DC, second most popular in the world (after the Louvre). Definitely go on off hours.

    I absolutely love the historical modules they have there and especially the flight simulations they were so much fun and I love how they have the Apollo 11 module remake at the entrance.

    아이들에게 딱 좋은 장소. 시니어에게 쉴 공간을 만들어 주세요. 아주 대단히 큰 맥도랄드 매장을 보았습니다. 공장형 맥도날드가 있는 곳입니다.

    Crowded, but to be expected in tourist-heavy DC. Plenty of intriguing exhibits, give yourself plenty of time!

  • The Ritz-Carlton

    As you explore, make sure you pay a visit to The Spirit of St. Louis, the world famous aircraft that took Charles Lindbergh on the first non-stop flight from New York to Paris in 1927.

    Iba algo decepcionado por el tamaño del lugar pero al ver el avión de los hermanos Wright se cumplieron mis expectativas, sólo por eso vale la pena la entrada.

    Probably 2nd most popular Smithsonian.Free to public, but IMAX costs $12, but significant discount if you get Smithsonian membership which is only $12 for whole family.Check out the Flight Simulators.
