    They are doing construction but the view and statue are amazing. You should take a photo of the Washington monument when you are up on the steps. It’s a quick place to see as most of it is blocked off

    It is just a cool, fun way to learn more about different species, animals and humanity itself. It is a must in every Washington trip

    Great spot to take kids but need to book in advance. This place books up. Our son loves this place and will spend hours there. You should book beforehand though. Day-of passes are tough to get

    For art lovers, this is a must-go. It mainly depends upon you about the time it takes to move around. If you love arts more than yourself then even a day or month does not suffice otherwise just two hours or may be an hour is great.

    The library is a really beautiful place that has a lot of history in its walls and collections. It is a great way of getting to know a little about american culture.

    A very sober experience. If your time is short or you are unable to get a free ticket, the three short films will give you an overall feel for what the museum is about. Highly recommended for everyone.

    When I first heard what design had been selected for this memorial, I thought it grossly inartistic and unworthy of what was to be memorialized. When I saw it in person , I realized how wrong I was. This is utterly compelling and a must stop for DC visitors.

    For me, this is the ultimate war memorial. While uniformly gray, the Pancho clad statues slogging through the field have a compelling life to them. Pro tip: try to go at dusk for maximum effect. One of my visits was on a very foggy evening, which was positively overwhelming.

    A stunning showcase of American history and culture. With iconic monuments and vast green spaces, it's a must-visit for anyone exploring the nation's capital. Be prepared for long walks and crowds, but the experience is definitely worth it.

    We tried to register for free online ticket but we were not successful. As there are limited ticket onsite we were there 8:30 am. And we got tickets. All kind of tickets are free the point is the capitol is popular and the daily amount of visits are limited.
    They start with a movie and then a guided tour.
    It was great . Lots of things to learn.
    There was a big coffee shop and we ate our break fast there.
    It takes about 2 hours to see everything.
    The library is connected to capitol by tunnel if you register for both you can go there by tunnel and scape the library queue.

    Everything about this varied and detailed memorial is well thought out and not only appropriate to commemorating the conflict, but also the generation and their position in the broader base of the historical period. The layout, architecture, and display take the visitor to the 1940s while providing place and peace for reflection.

    Lovely Gallery with some great portraits and information on each individual. Free to enter. No advanced reservations required.

    Conveniently located in the Penn Quarter area...only a 15 minute walk to the White House and a 15 minute walk to the National Mall.

    There is a large center area where the Orchid show currently is. Huge space with lots of tables and seating. There is also a small cafe selling Starbucks-like items there.

    The Gallery is separated into a few areas including American Presidents, 20th Century Americans, Champions (Sports) and Portraits from 1600-1900.

    Lots to see and learn...and of course, some awesome portaits. I loved the variety is art styles they covered throughout the Gallery. They realy did try to mix it up...which made it interesting.

    Great experience...highly recommended.

    This memorial is unique and beautiful. It's not like the other memorials, yet it's one of the best. It's an educational memorial showing about FDR. It's definitely a must-see. Coming back.
