  • Really awesome museum. It's free to get in to the museum, but if you want to do the butterflies you have to pay $5. We checked out all the exhibits, the photography one was fantastic. The butterfly habitat was very cool as well. Lots of good and educational videos. The mammal and ocean exhibit is very expansive and detailed. You can spend 3 hours here if you go through everything.

  • Baa awesome museum! This museum represents the end results of countless hours of careful and diligent scientific research done by hardworking scientists across many different scientific disciplines. Truly amazing body of knowledge. Thankfully there have been so many ethical scientists who have worked tirelessly to undertake the honest and thorough research which is required in these disciplines. It is remarkable what can be learned when 100 percent truth is your goal. Mainstream science has much to be proud of!!!

  • This is the best natural history museum I have ever visited. I interned here 13 years ago and I didn't even recognize the place. It's been completely renovated with excellent new exhibits. The only thing I wish it had more of (but is probably limited by space) is more on ancient civilizations. Just a tiny section to Egyptian afterlife. And I remember there used to be a lot more cultural history. The American museum of Natural history has A LOT to do to catch up!

  • I took 3 of my grandchildren and 1 cousin too D.C. for the day. We visited the Smithsonian and the kids loved it. They were very interested in reading the notes about the animals and mammals. We didn't get to see the entire museum but we will visit again.

  • Some great parts and some fairly standard parts. As a child or a parent with kids a clear 5/5 as I'm sure all would've been interesting. But for me parts were fairly dull and not exactly unique. If you've never been to a natural history museum before you'll find this a great one. It is well maintained, and of course free. However, for someone whose been to one before it's not that spellbinding there is still some good parts and since it's free it's pretty easy to speed through the other bits.
