Most visited museum in the nation
A great museum with full of history and knowledge. Hard to finish in one day.
Bonus points if you can find the Colt 45 on display (the drink)
Loved it!! Just wished they were open later considering they all close at either 5 or 5:30pm. Would be nice for them to be open later.
Kermit the Frog Muppet on display here.
Stop #5 on the 'Jim Henson In MD' Mini-Tour (DC). As of December 2015, the Muppet 'Kermit The Frog' is on display.
We found the Kermit puppet but despite signs on the wall saying that there was a full Muppets exhibit, we couldn't find it anywhere.
This museum has awesome rotating exhibits, including a civil rights exhibit a couple of years ago with the Selma lunch counter.
Pretty interesting museum in that it has a bevy of exhibits. You should easily be able to find something of interest in U.S. history for everyone in your group.
HUGE museum! Not necessarily in size, but there is so much inside to explore, you could spend the whole day here and get educated.
If your near by you must stop in. It's a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and it's free to get in!
Beautiful architecture and plenty to see here! Free!
First Lady exhibit is awesome. View First Lady inaugural dresses
More of an archive of famous items than a real history of America. Wish it were more substantive.
I loved it, nicely set up with great exhibitions!
The most beautiful and interesting museum I've ever seen...
So much to see! 🇺🇸
All the American history of business and entrepreneurship
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
Came here just to see Julia Child's kitchen.
Go on a rainy day, able to see more with less interruption
You have to check out the First Ladies exhibit, beautiful!
Awesome museum. Can't wait for the renovations to be done
So many things I didn't know about American history... Really well done
The "Star Spangled Banner" exhibit is worth the trip to DC alone. Incredibly artifact on display.
Don't miss the First Lady Inaugural Ball gowns exhibit!✨
Everything your amazed from the time you walk in to the time you leave out
Information warehouse for the curious mind. Highly recommend as a family outing place. Kids love it.
It's an all day tour. I love the war exhibit and the presidential wing
Skip the Stars and Stripes Cafeteria. The food is WAY overpriced and tastes like disappointment. Slice of pizza was $7 and was bad.
Easy to get lost in, give yourself plenty of time to explore!
Everything is awesome here! Plan for extra time to spend looking at everything!
Vietnam War Section & A-Bomb are my favorites
Ruby Slippers are a must. I miss Fonzie's jacket.
Yup I'm here
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.
The armed services exhibit on top floor was surprisingly good.
Boring and under construction.
The food is extremely expensive and not worth it.
They could do so much more. Don't miss it though. Check out the Ruby Slippers and Abe Lincoln's hat.
neither exciting nor informative, really gimmicky too
Julia child's kitchen!
One of the best museums in DC! The original star spangled banner is not to be missed!
The exhibit on technology is especially cool
