    This is not a good museum. Its displays are kitschy, and appear to be geared to school field trips more than anything. Given that this is the primary museum focused on the nation’s history in DC, that’s a real shame. New wings are scheduled to open up over the coming year or two, however, so perhaps they’ll be better. But if you have limited time in DC, you’re better off going to another museum such as the superb National Portrait Gallery.

    First off – this museum as all Smithsonian Museums is FREE! I saw someone posted that it was not.There is no better experience for an American than to see our Star Spangled Banner in person. The museum is beautiful with a phenomenal military history section walking through the wars.

    BEST MUSEUM IN THE WORLD! That could be my nationalism speaking, but where else can you learn about the Revolutionary War, then go see Kermit the Frog? Who else has diverse displays on the artifact walls, like tools of biotech, but then on the next artifact wall there’s old record covers? I mean, this museum just captures the expanse and breadth of American ingenuity, history, culture, etc. A wonderful museum that is possibly my favorite museum in the world. They always have an American Stories exhibit with displays of pop culture, their permanent transportation section is great for the kids, and the First Lady exhibit is always a treat. I would like to see a little more done with the exhibit than just their dresses, but history will march on soon enough!

    This is a really fascinating museum bringing together different inventions and examples of American history. Personally I like all the models of sailing ships, the train, the carriage when you first walk in and the old cars. There is also lots of examples of old style kitchenware and diningroom settings. The list goes on and on. Be sure to check out the cafeteria which is amazing and take a ride in the simulators down below.

    It was ok…. but really wish they would have informed the us and the other visitors that there was an entire section down stairs of simulators. We completely missed it. They rest of the museum was boring that is why we left so quickly.
