When you go to Washington, the Smithsonians museums are a “must-do” activity but make sure to plan lots of time! These museums are huge and extensive. One of our favorites was the Museum of American History. There were all sorts of activities for the kids to interact with and the artifacts from history, that are stored here, are amazing. It was also fun to point out items from our own childhood displayed as historical artifacts; items like the first Walkman! The display of old vehicles in the Transportation area was also very interesting.
