National Museum of the American Indian

Independence Avenue Southwest, Washington, DC, United States

OK, this is not my favorite museum. Best to go when they are having a special demonstration. But I do like the food! While they have your standard cafeteria fare, they also feature foods eaten by native peoples of this Hemisphere. Get your children to try the fry bread!

    The reflecting pool sits behind the Capitol Building, separating it from the National Mall. It's a great spot to get photos of the Capitol Building at night. For those looking for long exposures, there are plenty of sturdy pedestals and such around on which to prop your camera.

    Who wants to see a dinosaur? Seems like about 8 million people a year, second in world volume to only the Louvre in Paris as the most visited museum. Lots of school kids and groups wearing the same T-shirts make it very crowded in the summer. If you need a break from the crowds, try one of the 4D movies. ...

    The touristic heart of DC. Plenty of monuments, and museums that can fill up multiple days of interesting exhibits. Additionally, it is home to a variety of different festivals both large and small. Even if you've already done the museums and monuments, and there isn't a festival it is still a great place to enjoy a stroll or jog.

    The Library of Congress is indeed impressive. It supposedly contains all books, articles, records, and pretty much everything ever printed in US history and also tons of foreign literature. However, unless you are there to do research, there really isn't much to do except to just walk through. We visited the Library of Congress and ended up just spending less ...

    I love the “family guides” that describe the art in various galleries, and then provide questions and little projects for those aged 6 and up. There is also an audio tour designed for children. Edgar Degas' Little Dancer Aged Fourteen is a favorite with young ballerinas.

    Pretty fun and very cool. Lots of great activities but still not enough. I wish there were more interactive games for the young kids to play with. None the less a great experience and a "must go" place to visit.

    The Village in the heart of the City. Visit DC from a warm and friendly neighborhood of small shops, parks and restaurants. Eastern Market food stalls during the week and the wonderful Artists and Food vendors on weekends. A wealth of restaurants, form ethnic foods to steak houses to cutting edge "foodie" destinations.

    I used to work in this building before the recent enclosing of the court yard, it was wonderful then and is really amazing now well worth a trip to see the court yard alone. Stop and take a look at some art as well see portraits of many notable Americans and take a look at the Museum of American Art ...
