  • A great place for lovers of history and politics. The permanent and rotating exhibits offer something for first time and return visitors. Even kids as young as middle school will appreciate the exhibits. Everyone will appreciate the cafeteria featuring menu items by Wolfgang Puck. If you're going, go soon. The building has been sold and the public is awaiting news of the next location. Use Metro. Parking in downtown D.C. can be challenging.
  • Really great museum. Worth the cost of admission. Loved the Full sized Berlin Wall exhibit (not just a piece, full section of wall and guard tower). Also loved Newspapers from every era. Can see front pages from hundreds of papers from many different papers. New media exhibit was great too. Something to see on every floor and around every corner
