“Finally a day without responsibilities I took the bus (16c,g or h) to the next metro station and the yellow line to DC. Got out at "Archives" and strolled down Pensylvania Avenue to the "Newseum". Took a left there and passed several DC courthouses. I found my way to the SAAS, passing the Shakepeare Theater Company and the Capital one stadium. Finally, the Smithonian American Art Museum! Portraits of important men and women shaping US-American history. Beautiful landscapes prior to industrialisation. I loved it! I'll be back for sure! Took the yellow line at the side of the museum, changed to the bus at Pentagon City Station. Grabbed a late lunch at Giants and couldn't stop myself treating me with a coconut pie from the Pie Company opposite Walter Reed bus station. Here I am, waiting for my son to come back from school - next time I'll take him!”

Historialliset museot

Science Museum
“Natural history appeals to all ages! There are artifacts that you can’t possibly see them all in one visit. The dinosaur exhibits, the Family Hall of Mammals, and the Sant Ocean are fascinating and great for adults and kids. Then there's the cinematography and scenery in the IMAX films that's simply stunning.”

“The museum is a memorial to the millions of Jews who died during the Nazi regime in Germany during World War II. The exhibits tell the horrific story of genocide and teach the dangers of hatred and prejudice. Visiting this museum is an emotional experience so be sure that you have enough time and stamina. The permanent exhibits are not recommended for children under 11 years old. There is a separate exhibit for ages 8 and up that tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of a young boy. ”
