ton DC we went to the Smithsonian Museum and we truly stepped into another time a place. It was considerably more exciting than seeing it in the Night at the Living Museum. The museum is enormous, there was more things to see than could be seen in one day. The Smithsonian does not charge an entrance fee, but if you want to watch the Imax movie there is a small fee, you can also support the museum by donating to Henry the elephant fund, buying a tour map of the museum or paying to see the live butterfly attraction. None of these things are mandatory, thus you can go and never spend a penny but it is nice to donate whatever you can afford.
