Opened in 1910, the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) is part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s preeminent museum and research complex.
One of the best museums in the country. Free. Plenty of fascinating exhibits relating to human history.
Free museum with a lot of things to see and to do! You have lockers thay cost only U$0,25, live butterfly where you pay only 6 dollars and have an amazing experience.
Exhibits are so cool. I love native americans
Favorite museum in town!
Origins of life
Q?rius is the coolest place for teens and adults with Ober 8000 objects toy can take to a table to study like real scientists. Research quality microscopes. Expect to spend an hour here! Worth but it!
So much to do!! I could get lost in here because there's so much to see and do. Prepare for several hours.
It's amazing how big it is.
Dinosaur bones! And the hope diamond.
Take in the infamous 45.52-carat Hope Diamond, the largest deep blue diamond in the world. The stunning gem has a long and mysterious past, and is said to be cursed.
One of the most fascinating places ever. Best way to spend an entire day with family or kids. Do look into their suggested routes within museum - it helps make things interesting.
The geology exhibit was actually one of the coolest attractions. I though it was going to be the section that I was least interested in, but the museum's collection of gems and crystals is amazing!
Butterfly exhibit, but get there before 4 to get a ticket in!
The exhibition about the evolution of man is great
The butterfly exhibit was awesome. The dinosaurs are temporarily upstairs.
The museam is awesome and free admission!
Yet another must visit place while touring DC.
Go early morning on sunday is free, Great museum, lo es the dinosaur area.
The dinosaurs and the underwater section
Very popular museum that is free to public. One of the busier museums. Definitely recommend the IMAX movies.Get a Smithsonian Membership: family is $12. Gets you discounts in gift shop and IMAX movies

T-Rex. 'Nuff said.
The human origins exhibit is a must see.
Information is too dumbed down compared to new York.
Awesome, the variety of exhibitions will leave you speechless. Please say hi to bones the T-Rex for me! :)
Don't miss the HOPE DIAMOND on the second floor.
What a great place to pop in and take in some curiosities.
Amazing rocks and minerals, some of the most famous gems
Too much for one day! Absolutely amazing museum.
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!
Absolutely loved coming here
The restroom by the African room is empty. So if you have to go do it there.
It's fun & educational. A must go spot if you are traveling with young children. Both adults and children. Will enjoy it.
The café in the basement sells a bottle of mineral water for a price of $3.
Best museum ever!! Just got to take it slow, there is a lot to process.
Really enjoying the butterfly exhibit and just about everything else
IMAX and the butterfly exhibit
Love the jewelery collection. The hope diamond is often crowded, but they have a more extensive collection. Very cool.
The orchids are excellent.$6 for butterflies = waste of money
The best of the museums in DC, no doubts
Awesome! Need a whole day to see everything.
Hope diamond. Dinosaurs. Bugs and butterflies. What doesn't this museum have? So much fun for the whole family!
My school always takes us here at some point, and yet there's always something new or interesting to see!
Free activity that is fun for all ages. Within walking distance from the Metro, too. Loved it!
Love the gem collection. So amazing!
See the minerals.
