Smithsonian Museums, A Quick Trip

SAM_6690

We managed to sneak in a quick side trip to Washington DC for a few hours between cities.  We knew it would be a short trip and only planned on one museum, but we got 2 in.  DC, if you are on the east coast is a great quick trip for travelers of all ages and much of it is free.

The 2 we visited today were American History and Natural History, and as usual both were very busy.  It is wonderful to see school children from the area and around the country at these museums.  Our tax dollars keep them running and started them in the beginning, so what a good use of dollars.

Since we had a short time available, we could only have a quick trip to see some of the iconic items on display.  The good part is, my teenage travel companions both loved them.  We now have made plans to come and visit again!

The above are Natural History next is American History and they liked both for different reasons.

 

Looks like we found a quilt, but it is individual canvases.  Very interesting.
