DC Trip - Museum Day

Like I said before, my brother and I ventured out to some Smithsonian museums one of the days of our trip. I was really blown away by the Air and Space museum! So many neat things to see and learn about. To be honest, I was expecting this one to be boring and something we could breeze through quickly. All I wanted to see was the Wright brothers plane and that was it.  We spent about 2 or 3 hours here and only left so we could squeeze in another museum.  We headed over to the American History museum after that.  We really saw some cool stuff here but I liked this museum a lot less. Part of the reason was because a LOT of the exhibits were closed for renovations and I felt like the remainder of them were a bit lackluster. However, it was free so I really can't complain too much. :)  Seeing two of these huge museums in one day was really exhausting but I'm glad we fit two in!

  1. Great pics! I got to visit those museums on a school trip in high school - but it's been years. And I remember not feeling like I had enough time back then! Will have to travel there someday!
