Good reading with the magazine, good viewing with the museum. Shop very attractive. It's impossible do not return, an obligatory stop when at DC.

Having been to many of the great, free government museums, I stumbled onto this museum while walking around the city. It has many interesting exhibits and a great book collection in the gift shop. If you enjoy the magazine, you'll enjoy the museum.

My two daughters and I went to the museum over memorial weekend on a Sunday. The museum starts with a cover of all the national geographic magazine covers....very cool. There are actual items from your favorite episodes on the national geographic TV shows. The photography is truly amazing quintessential national geographic. There are many interactive exhibits so the kids were very engaged. Great time in DC.

I love the National Geographic museum - it's one of my favorites in DC. The photos and behind-the-scenes stories on how the photos were captured are incredibly intriguing. I went during the stunning New Age of Exploration exhibit. If you are into photography, this is a must-see!

The National Geographic museum is a great place to spend time if you have always enjoyed those distinctive yellow-bordered magazines and the phenomenal photographs and intriguing stories from all around the world. Make the effort to find this great museum.
