  • 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!!!

  • Ahhhhhhhh bucket list item checked off. My kids loved it,despite being exhausted from the hike to get here. I loved it. Was so happy to finally go. I had goosebumps through most of it. I just couldn't begin to really explain how amazing it is. If you're ever in the area go,entrance is free.

  • Very very cool museum. Very old and cool building. Plenty of learning to be done here. Every time you go you will learn new things. Plenty of bathrooms and benches for rests. Great food court and gift shops. Highly recommended.

  • I love visiting the Smithsonian museums. Dress as if you expect to stand in line outside for awhile. They try to move folks through security checks quickly but even mid week the lines can be long. The exhibits are insightful. I look forward to the updated dinosaur exhibit coming to the Natural History museum. But they still have t-rex and the triceratops on display.

  • I spend my best vacation ever around this Smithsonian museums. So much to see and learn. If you like science and history, this is the place to visit. I spend the whole day in this museum. Wonderful.
