National Museum of African American History and Culture
The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture seeks to understand American history through the lens of the African American experience.
This is a must see. One of the DC’d most popular attractions. Problem is you can’t see it all in one day. Great food in the cafeteria. If you don’t have a ticket you might just show up, there are generally people giving extra tickets away. We understand they may stop requiring tickets soon.
One of the newest museums on the National Mall. A powerful and informative experience.
Newest Museum located on National Mall. Stunning architecture and beautiful exhibits inside .
The history of the African American experience eloquently displayed. Wonderful food.
The newest Smithsonian museum, this moving 400,000-square-foot chronicles the African American experience with more than 37,000 artifacts in its collection. That includes Nat Turner's bible, a WWII plane used by the Tuskegee Airmen, and a dress worn by Rosa Parks.
“Of course the entire Smithsonian Institution is a cultural landmark; but the Air Space Museum in particular is one of our favorites.”
“One of the most popular museums on the Mall, and for good reason! After a long hiatus, the new-and-improved dinosaur hall has reopened and is a must-visit.”
“An 18-mile drive to the scenic and historic Georgetown waterfront. Explore, shop and eat by the water by day or dine, stroll the river and take in dance clubs by night.”
“Built in 1915, this is a beautiful, columned memorial dedicated to Abraham Lincoln. It’s situated at the end of a large reflecting pool that overlooks the WWII Memorial and the Washington Monument.”
“The museum is a memorial to the millions of Jews who died during the Nazi regime in Germany during World War II. The exhibits tell the horrific story of genocide and teach the dangers of hatred and prejudice. Visiting this museum is an emotional experience so be sure that you have enough time and stamina. The permanent exhibits are not recommended for children under 11 years old. There is a separate exhibit for ages 8 and up that tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of a young boy. ”
