The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History dedicates its collections to inspiring a broader understanding of our nation. The highlight for me was the original Star-Spangled Banner. It had a number of interesting exhibits and collections. During our visit, they were displaying the dresses worn by all of the first ladies during inauguration.
I do not consider this to be one of the better Smithsonian museums. We spent about 2 hours sampling a number of exhibits. A highlight for me was its bookstore had an author of a military history book signing books, so I bought one.
