WASHINGTON, D.C. — Washington, DC is home to an extraordinary collection of museums. To demonstrate just how much there is to take in here, and why it’s ideal for travelers, here is one thing for every family member at the Smithsonian Institution.
For The Kids — The first place you need to take your kids in Washington, DC is the National Air and Space Museum. With more historic aircrafts and spacecrafts than any other place in the world, it’s a young adventurer’s dream world. IMAX shows, interactive exhibits on the Wright Brothers and outer space are also major hits with the little ones.
For The Moms — For a bit of art and sun on the National Mall, the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden may just be the perfect place for moms. From dark-gothic statues to colorful-modern sculptures, there’s an eclecticism that appeals to art-lovers and novices alike.
For The Dads — Sure it’s a bit of a stereotype, but there’s no denying the link between fathers and history. Let dad run wild at the National Museum of American History where he can see iconic relics like the flag that inspired the Star Spangled Banner and Dorothy’s original red slippers from the Wizard of Oz.
For The Kids Again — Just because children need many outlets for entertainment, after taking them to the National Air and Space Museum stop by the Smithsonian’s National Zoo where over 2,000 animals live. Marvel at pandas, elephants and a whole lot more at this fun and educational spot to take your kids in Washington, DC.
