Great place to visit. Covers a lot of history in the news business. All major events covered. Spent the whole day at the Newseum.
There is so much to see and do here, so much history. My sister spent ages in the civil war part, and you can easily spend two days if you're a true history buff. There is science, war history and a medical history as well. It's one of the best places in the US for history. You really need to... More
My wife and I spent two days on only the Air & Space museum and the Museum of American History because there is so much to see...every trip to DC must include the Smithsonian.

A lot of the more delicate and interesting loaner items from around the world are displayed here. Put it on the list of things to see while you are... More
everything on anything you want to know about. There is a wonderful portrait gallery. I love to see people from different times. I saw dinosaurs and space craft as well as all the first lady's inaugural dresses. Actually very interesting in a similar way to the portrait gallery. Something for everyone!
