The National Museum of Natural History is a part of the Smithsonian institution and is perhaps one of the most brilliantly displayed museums of Natural History in the world. The museum is extremely well-equipped and has a fascinating variety of natural history displays.
Perhaps the biggest attraction of the place is “the Hope Diamond” which is located in the Minerals gallery. This beautiful walnut sized diamond never ceases to amaze the visitors. There is also a butterfly pavilion which is certainly worth checking out. Besides this there are mummies, skins of several rare animals, dinosaur bones and an amazing array of stuff to see at this wonderful place.
Dedicated to education and research, the place is ideal to take children to. Everyone is sure to love the interesting displays and the tons of collected artefacts and exhibits related to natural history.

I would love to rate our wonderful museum five stars but it's hard to do that. I'm asking for a garbage can to throw my sons soda bottle away that I already feel terrible about even asking. I follow the rules my 9 year old had no clue and I didn't notice till it was to late. The first lady officer was polite and told me to please throw it away once I went through the metal detector. Absolutely I said and apologized. Second officer started reprimanding me .I explained our mistake and got a eye roll as a response and a threat to make me go outside to throw it away. I was in shock and she decided to wave me threw. Third officer very nice asked me to throw it away. This is all in 10 feet from the front door to the garbage can. Fourth officer super nice told us to enjoy....finally got to throw the soda bottle away.They are definitely doing there job but no need to be rude.
A great experience for anyone visiting DC! Provides a fun and energetic atmosphere for friends and family. Plenty of exhibits to see and many learning opportunities. Staff is very helpful and friendly if you require any assistance. Bathroom access is average as to expect for a place with high traffic. A nice place to spend the day away overall! Would recommend seeing if you haven't already!
I love that the museums are free! The exhibits are phenomenal! I loved seeing the Hope diamond and the stuffed animals exhibit. My 11 month old loved the Butterfly Pavilion, as did I. You do have to pay $6 a ticket for this exhibit but it's worth it! If you need wheelchair or stroller access you have to enter on the backside of the museum, on Constitution.
Beautiful day and fantastic places to explore. Food available in many museums also vendors outside for a quick and cheaper bite. Food is expensive inside! Vendors outside offer a wide variety and was very tasteful. And clean. Expect to lose track of time. Honestly one could easily spend a day per museum. If that's not doable priotize your most desirable places first. And that's museums only....Not including the memorials and monuments. Give yourself at minimum of a week. Longer if you want to visit George Washington at his home in Mount Vernon (very worthwhile, about 2.5 hours to see it, will have to drive it take tour bus, along the river, no metro) or see the George Washington Masonic Temple which is breathtaking ( Short walk from King Street Metro or easy available parking on site).
Let me start out by saying WOW!!!!! This place is incredible, there's so much to see that you have to bring a lot of time with you to see all the exhibits. We were left the house on a spear of the moment to visit and arrived at around 1430 hrs, we never got to finished looking at all that was to see because the museum was closing. Lucky for us we came on a holiday and did not have to pay for parking. If you're planning on visiting I suggest that you find an all day parking available someplace because they only allow 2 hrs parking in front. I would highly recommend that up visit with your family. It's free to get in and a lot of the exhibits allows you to touch and feel for yourself. We had a blast visiting Thank you very much for having us!!!
