One of my highlights of our trip. Though most of the top floor was under renovations it still was a great tour of our history. We spent several hours exploring while also having lunch in their cafe. The food was very expensive but the choices were very good and enjoy the once in a lifetime experience. Go early and it will not be as busy and you will be able to take your time.
Great museum to visit to learn about US history. You need a full day to appreciate this place. The war exhibit is very informative. It's a great place to learn about the US presidents and the roles and responsibilities. Also it shows that ad a country we needed to learn from the mistakes made in the past.
Museum was GREAT, Cafe was TERRIBLE. Way overpriced. However, entrance to museum was free. Enjoy museum, Eat somewhere else. Pulled pork sandwich tasted like lighter fluid and macaroni & cheese tasted like soggy noodles with water. 2 ADULTS, 5 KIDS = $145 lunch
Museum itself was awesome! Big history buff and really enjoyed everything. There was way too much to see in one day. Loved the First Ladies exhibition. The cafe was way overpriced but so is a lot of food in dc.
This was one of the highlights of our recent trip to D.C. There is so much to see that we will definitely go back and see it again when we return. When asking our 3 girls ages 10, 14 and 17 what they liked most about our trip this was at the top of the list for all of them. Highly recommended. And yes, there will be crowds, but it's worth it.
