National Museum of American History

Local nameNational Museum of American History
LocationWashington D.C., United States

Perfect for history lovers, but great for curious individuals with no historical background too. Built in 1964, it educates the general public in a fun way ever since.

The museum tries to get the message of "what it means to be an American" through with various exhibits. These exhibits range from peculiar (like the history of American lunchboxes) to deep (the US during wars - The Price of Freedom), including the history of American technology & transportation and various idols and icons. When you get tired from observing the precious items and listening to history, you can visit the museum's cafeteria.

You can get here by subway (Smithsonian Station or Federal Triangle station, blue, orange and silver line), or by taking the X1 bus route, station Constitution Ave & 14th St.
