Washington museums

US museums have always been famous for their interactivity and rich collections, but among them are those that are remembered for a lifetime. Many of them are concentrated here in Washington. It is understandable - the capital is still.


Briefly about the specifics of the museums of the US capital

It seems to many that the stereotypical-serious image of Washington extends to all the institutions of the city. We described the image of the US capital in other articles about how far the image was far-fetched, but I would like to speak about museums separately.

Yes, the themes of the expositions here are quite serious, but here is the method of delivering them as loyally as possible to all visitors. No stiffness, a maximum of interactivity, examples and comparisons available, an orientation towards modernity. In addition, and easy navigation - most of the museums are located in the center, two steps away from each other.

  • National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC - photo of a hall and an elephant at the entrance - American ButlerNational Alley Museums

On the territory of the National Alley there are several museums that are the best in their segment. Moreover, not only in the United States, but throughout the world. Many of them belong to the Smithsonian Research Institute, which means they are completely free.

  • National Museum of Aeronautics and Astronautics

Here is the largest in the world historical collection of aircraft. That is, each visitor will be able to trace the path from the ancient Chinese kites to the space shuttle Discovery, flying until 2011. Yes, and the case on the National Alley is far from exhausting the subject - a giant exposition of technology is also presented at the airport Dulles. In addition, the museum opened a huge exhibition on geology, geography and physics.

  • Holocaust Museum

Another "most", this time - the most visited historical museum of the planet. In this museum, a set of events is presented as a personal experience. Each visitor passes through the history of the Holocaust as its participant: hears voices and eyewitness accounts, sees panoramas and reconstructions of camps, ghettos, cemeteries...

The collection contains more than 19,000 exhibits, each of which is involved in the production of the action. Despite the morally difficult topic, the museum also has a children's unit - the youngest visitors are only 8 years old.

  • Museum of Journalism or Newzeum

The Museum of Journalism makes an impression with one look - the quotation from the US Constitution is engraved on its facade, the walls are completely transparent, as ideally the conscience of the journalist is transparent, and in the building itself there is a real challenge. The museum denies boring exposures, giving an outlet to the interactive: there are cinemas, halls, pavilions and studios for all existing types of media. Anyone can not only get acquainted with the profession, but also try himself as, for example, a reporter, presenter, technician or editor of his favorite TV program.

One of the oldest scientific museums in the United States, which has long been a living classic along with its New York counterpart. The museum works completely free of charge, every day, and the number of exhibits in its collection is measured in millions. Here and geology with giant diamonds, and paleontology with the skeletons of ancient animals, and biology with the very first inhabitants of our planet... In general, just a godsend for traveling with children.

  • National Gallery of Art

Well, where without a collection of masterpieces of fine art. There is no need for descriptions here - most of the works presented in the National Gallery do not exist anywhere else, even in reproductions. If you are fond of this kind of art, then here is a straight road to you.

  • Spy Museum

This museum is located not on the National Alley, but nearby, but it is necessary to add it to the “gold list”. This is the most controversial, but also one of the most interesting museums, which promises to reveal all the secrets of US spy games . Of course, a special and dearly beloved topic there is America and Russia during the days of the Cold War. Believe everything presented or not - decide for yourself, but the exhibition is extremely curious and definitely cost a couple of hours and $20 per entrance.

We will tell about each of the museums in more detail, but this is not a complete list of what Washington is rich with.

Experts of American Butler will help to get acquainted with the city in all its glory, without losing a single interesting corner!
