This museum is one of the finest the Smithsonian offers. It contains a complete history of America from the original flag that flew over Fort McHenry and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner, to a history of transportation as the country expanded from Atlantic to Pacific. There is a lovely exhibit containing First Lady Gowns from Mary Todd Lincoln forward. There is also a dress belonging to Dolley Madison on view. The White House china is also on display starting with Martha Washington and Abigail Adams through several first ladies until modern times.
This is a treasure and should be viewed with your family. The children love it.
