Amazing place to see the displays and give you a sense of American pride that we were pioneers in so many areas. Do you history homework before you go to fully appreciate how great it is

Great staff volunteers and discussions. Lots to see and learn. Imax not necessary. Mcdonalds attached for snack if needed but can not bring anything back in. In my opinion needs some updates- but excellent for the price-free (except tax money)

I see that strollers are allowed, but I am coming to D.C. by train and will use a backpack child carrier for my 2-year-old. Will I be able to carry her in it inside the museum?

I didn't see signage discouraging this types of carriers athough you will have to pass through a metal detector.
