    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!

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

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