  • My favorite national museum! Free, great parking, and great location! So much easier than the museums on the mall. Such a cool collection! Does a giant colon, fetal soecimens in jars, and an elephant man leg sound like a good time? If so, this place is for you! Whether you're into medicine, history, or are just a freak, there's something here for everyone. They even have the bullet that killed Lincoln.
  • I went to this museum with a group to do a forensics lab on bones. The lab was fantastic and fun. The museum was full of human skeletons, real human brains with concussions and bullets. They even have the bullet that killed Lincoln. Definitely recommend this place if you’re into science and the human body.
