Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

The Museum of the Bible is an amazing place. We found a reasonable hotel right around the corner (Marriott Residence Inn) for $135 per might (senior rate), which included a grab n go breakfast. The museum is in walking distance. It is a classy endeavor. White marble staircases (of course there are elevators), clean, roomy rest rooms on each floor. Clearly labeled, first-class exhibits. Well organized. And above all, the staff is very solicitous and engaging. Even the outside security company the museum employs has a great, friendly knowledgeable staff. We just loved it. Definitely worth the $20 (senior price). Day 1. We arrived from Long Island at 11 a.m. We had an easy check-in, and our rooms were ready. Each room was a nice size with a kitchenette. Really top notch hotel and relatively inexpensive. Definitely worth the price based on the location. We had purchased Big Bus tickets from Groupon prior to the trip, and we decided to just hop on at one of the locations nearest our hotel---and stay on for the whole trip--and get off at the same spot. So we got a good bird's eye view of Washington. That took us into the mid afternoon. We freshened up and then took an Uber to a nearby restaurant for supper. Day 2. We walked to the Museum, which opens at 10 (unless you're a charter member; then it opens at 9). We had researched which floors to cover when, etc., but it wasn't necessary: they'll tell you the best way to see the whole museum once you get there. Make sure to purchase the extra "ride" (I forget what it's called) that takes you above the fray to each DC building where Scripture is somehow incorporated into the structures. ) They had over a dozen "galleries". It will take you an entire day to see the whole museum with all its galleries, but you have to keep moving. We weren't sorry we did it all in one day. We went on a week day, and so it wasn't busy. Day 3. We headed home--glad we went.

I have to start by saying that I am not a museum person. I typically do not enjoy most museums. This one is very different because it is very interactive. We started at the Washington Revelations 'ride,' which is basically an Imax ride flying around DC looking for biblical inscriptions. Very cool and a lot of fun. It is $5 extra and you purchase the ticket when you enter the museum. It was well worth it. We spent 3 hours on the 4th floor, which is the History of the Bible. Each section of the exhibit preps you with a short, entertaining video that helps you appreciate what you see in the exhibit. It took us 3 hours to get through the 4th floor and the time raced by. We are definitely coming back because we didn't have time to see any of the other floors. If you think you might be back, you may want to consider a membership, as it pays for itself on a second visit.

We only had about 3.5 hours, so we didn't get through everything, but what we did do was super cool. My favorite part was the Jesus of Nazareth village on the 3rd floor. There was a woman dressed in period costume that told about the daily life in the village, and she was very informative and kept true to the character she was representing. There were artifacts, interactive experiences, and short movies. Something for everyone! We hope to return to be able to see the rest at some point.

Visited on Monday, Sept. 21 and had a wonderful visit. I went primarily for my interest in the history of the Bible and was very impressed with the extensive displays and videos showing the history of the Jewish Torah and the Christian New Testament as well as the translations into many different languages. Time very well spent for me. I was also surprised how much I enjoyed the "Stories" of the Old an New Testament. Great graphics for any age.

This is a must not only for people of faith, but for history and archaeology lovers as well. It presents a fact based account of the bible without denying the faith aspects. There were several special exhibits which periodically change. Suggest you allow a lot more time than you would think you need.
