    Lots of good things to see here. I don't think it's quite as good as the one one in NY, but it is maintained better and it's free!

    Classic Smithsonian Museum to go to, even if there are a lot of tourists around. The food in the cafe downstairs is quite expensive for what it is though.

    Love the jewelery collection. The hope diamond is often crowded, but they have a more extensive collection. Very cool.

    This museum is very well maintained and clean. There's a visitor services desk for guests needing directions and a guide map. My favorite part was the area that covers human origins
