“Must See!!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Awesome view of the US Capital, Monument and the Mall. You MUST walk from the Capital to the Lincoln Memorial while in DC. Get pics, take it all in & maybe catch a game of softball with the locals.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

There has to be a museum for everybody here. Particularly enjoyed the History Museum and the First Ladies' Dresses. Thought we would be there for a couple of hours and spent most of the day there.

Seriously?! I'm a history geek. The Smithsonian Museums continually amaze me with what they own! And their guides are simply the best!

“Air/Space Museum - great for whole family”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Free entry, heaps to see and do to keep everyone interested. Spent hours here and didnt see everything. You do need to pay extra for the flight simulator which the kids absolutely loved, and the planetarium and the 3D films but you dont need to do those as there is heaps to see.
