    The WM is closed until spring 2019. But you can still do a walking tour to see the monuments and museums around the National Mall. If you love history and our country then you won't be disappointed.

    When people say, "get there early," they mean it. Arrived 30 min early (in early May) and there were already 40 people in line. Only waited 7 min to get to the front but it's low tourism season.
