  • Definitely worth visiting. Best time to go is Spring and Fall. Best hours are early morning before 11:00 A.M. Bring comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to walk. Museums that are near and adjacent to the mall are either free or may run in cost up to the mid $20's per person. But dollar for dollar, well worth the expense. Do research before going and plan your day to maximize your visit.

  • This place is so big with so much to see. If you want to hit every museum you will need at least two days to do so. What an amazing and eye opening place to visit. You will not be disappointed with all the history and art you will find here. You must go!

  • During my visit to the National Mall I visited the Smithsonian African American Museum which I found to be astounding. There is so much information here that one cannot visit this place in one day you need at least 2 or 3 days to fully see what it has to offer. I can see why there were lines and lines of people expecting to get in to such a wonderful treasure for the eyes and ears. This is a must if you visit DC I'm sure the other museums are just splendid but this one hits close to home. Will visit again.

  • This is a great and wonderful place to visit. Personally, I enjoy going there during the Spring so that I could enjoy the cherry blossom season. The Smithsonian, the Monument and Lincoln Memorial are my favorites. I heard there are new additions and I haven't been there in two years. I am hoping to visit in 2018 if all goes well!

  • Amazing place to go any time of the year or anytime. The best time to walk around the mall is after sunset.the place becomes less crowded quiet and filled with lights. Don't worry about being alone, you can see tourists and locals raking strolls even after midnight
