    Constitution Ave entrance is where the lockers are as well as a cafe w/ice cream & sandwiches that's less of a thrash than the main one. Still no accessible outlets for recharging electronics. 😒📲

    Extremely interesting exhibition on The American Automobile industry (1st floor) & American Presidency (3rd floor). This museum and the Space one are my favorite in DC

    Skip the Stars and Stripes Cafeteria. The food is WAY overpriced and tastes like disappointment. Slice of pizza was $7 and was bad.

    About half of the museum is closed, getting ready for exhibits that open next year. It was much better in the past and will probably be much better in the future, but right now it's just okay.

  • Island Bruin

    The armed services exhibit on top floor was surprisingly good.

    Island Bruin · June 9
  • Eric L.

    Boring and under construction.

    Eric Liu · June 2
  • Audra L.

    The food is extremely expensive and not worth it.

    Audra Luttrell · May 14
  • Aaron S.

    They could do so much more. Don't miss it though. Check out the Ruby Slippers and Abe Lincoln's hat.

    Best exhibit here are probably the transportation and technology exhibits on the first floor. Head to the third floor if you want to see what the First Ladies wore.
