The Smithsonian "Castle," as it is called, is a really wonderful old building. Just looking at it from the outside is a great experience. The architecture is so unique. Inside are displays from all the Smithsonian Museums plus the history of how the museums were started. We ate at the small restaurant/deli and it was very good lunch. There is a gift store and there are many places to just sit and rest while looking at wonderful displays. I enjoyed it as I could get a flavor of all the museums; especially the ones we just did not have the time to tour. And, as with all the Smithsonian Museums there is no charge to visit.
