The National Mall, Washington D.C. Is the name of the most amazing area in Washington D.C.
The rectangular area contain unbelievably large number of outdoor and indoor attractions. starting from the Wahington monument, Capitol building, several memorial monuments, parks, to museums like Air and Space, Natural History, and more than a dozen other museums.
I have never such a great collection of museums and memorials in one place!.
Since it is impossible to review everything here, I will just mention very general points about the National Mall, and leave reviews of the museums and monuments in their assigned places.
Starting with transportation to the National Mall which is available by tour buses, underground metro, and also private cars. I have not had any serious problem finding a parking space in the area, but sometimes I had to use indoor parking which was actually quite expensive.
Admission to all museums and monuments is surprisingly FREE of charge except probably the aquarium.
More than 20 museums and attractions in this area are part of the Simthsonian institution and are part of the institution's educational, cultural, and research efforts.
Museums in general are set up in a way to provide information to all visitors and specially to children in a very attractive way. Some museums and monuments need one to two hours, and others may need more than four or five hours and may be several visits.
When you decide to do your visits to the National Mall, choose a nice day because you may spend a lot of time outdoor. Also choose comfortable clothing and a hat if you visit in June, July, or August.
It is a fascinating area.. Enjoy it.
