Great fun. Huge museum....reminds me of the Museum of Natural History in NYC. Currently there is a butterfly exhibit. Extra fees required.
Had lunch here, too. Food ok.....not many healthy choices though.

So many Smithsonian museums all around the National Mall, but the Museum of Natural History is one of my favorites. If you haven't been there to see the Hope Diamond yet, you are truly missing out!

It didn't seem as impressive to me as it would have if I was a kid. There were lots of exhibits with animals, dinosaur fossils, etc... Again, it would definitely be something not to miss if you have young ones.

A great opportunity to see a Nat History Museum for free! Similar to others only without the pricey admission
