I've been to the national mall more times than I can count and it seems like I always do something different and there are still many things on my list that I haven't yet managed to do. The museums and monuments are spectacular and it is always a fantastic day when we go in to walk around and take in the history and the general beauty of the area. We especially enjoy the cherry blossoms in the spring.
I live in Maryland and work in DC for 5 years and the National Mall is a great place to spend. I haven't see all of the museum ......and most of it is free! The Mall has the Washington Monument at one end at the Capital at the other. In between are many of the Smithsonian museums, The White house, the brand new African American Museum, the Native American Museum, Holocaust museum, money factory museum and the National Gallery of Art. Behind the Capital are the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Many are open from 10-5 and offer excellent free guided tours. Security is tight but lines were short. Best place to spend time in DC.
Love the National Mall - there always so much to see. Very busy - highly recommend finding an off time to visit. Beautiful landscaping, lots of museums/memorials to see. Well worth multiple visits. Parking can be difficult, don't plan on getting free parking.
The National Mall is a great place to spend a few days seeing some of the best historical places and art the country has to offer.......and much of it is free! The Mall has the Washington Monument at one end at the Capital at the other. In between are many of the Smithsonian museums, the brand new African American Museum, the Native American Museum and the National Gallery of Art. Behind the Capital are the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Many are open from 10-5 and offer excellent free guided tours. If you want to watch the House or Senate in action, visit your representative's office and obtain free tickets. Security is tight but lines were short.
Visit! Soak in the huge, open space in the center of a busy and densely populated metro area. Feast on architecture and bath in the presence of history. This is where every patriot should contemplate the greatness of this nation. Oh and visit all the free (!!!) museums, galleries, and gardens. Google users and google administrators can't get the National mall right. The marker for the National Museum of African American History and Culture is still lumped together with the National Museum of American History and cannot be changed. I contacted google several times and tried several times but African American is not existent. Sad! Pictures are not connected to the correct museums and Mall pictures are often just museums picture. Again, I tried organizing those pictures but get overwritten by the overlords.
