    WHY WE LIKE IT

    While we love the other classic museums in town with their ancient artifacts and historical exhibits, this museum feels fresh and new with interesting and interactive displays.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    This is one of the few museums in town with an admission fee, and although it’s one of the best, it’s still hard to hand over more than USD 20 for a ticket.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    A great choice for sleek and modern DC dining, The Source by Wolfgang Puck, is located inside the museum.
