We also went and saw the Hope Diamond and went through an exhibit about race.
When we'd felt like we'd seen all we wanted to see at the Natural History Museum, it was time to move on to the American History Museum. We saw Dorothy's slippers......the original Muppets...
There's a special exhibit just for kids, so families are still encouraged to go to the Holocaust Memorial Museum. It's gut-wrenching to see what people did to other humans and what the victims went through, but it is imperative that we do not ignore history just because it is painful. During the off months (September through mid-March), guests to the museum do not need to get tickets ahead of time to go to the museum. In the other months, guests must pick up the free tickets that day (or pay a fee to order online). I highly suggest going if you're coming to DC!
After the Museum, we headed back to the apartment for some relaxation, Kardashian, and falafel and couscous dinner! It was a great day!
