Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History Reviews
시간이 많이 없어서, 한바퀴 쭉 돌면서 보고 싶은거 위주로 보고 사진찍었는데, 약 2시간 정도 소요되었던 것 같아요! 어른들의 호기심도 충족시켜줄 수 있는 그곳! 추천합니당~ more »I don't have much time, so I took a picture of it because I wanted to go around all the time, but it took about two hours! It's a place where you can satisfy the curiosity of adults! I recommend it.
The Smithsonians as a whole are a fab fab set of museums and a true national treasure - and treat - for all us taxpayers! And the Natural History museum stands hands-and-shoulders above its peers. Spe... more »
Really big museum so plan to spend 3+ hrs here. Every minute is worth the experience. Lots of different exhibits so there's something for everyone. Very impressive collection of gems. The mummies were one of my favorite displays. Lots of people so prepare to maneuver around them. Bring comfortable shoes.
I've been visiting since I was an infant and somehow it never ceases to amaze. Incredible taxidermy, beautiful habitat reconstructions, a gorgeous array of minerals and examples of mine shafts and layouts, and SO much more. Animals, rocks, fossils, insects, human history, anything you're interested in is probably here. I particularly enjoyed the staff members at certain areas that offered some extra fun activities and knowledge. Five-year-old twins had an incredible time and ask to go back at least once a week. Parking on the street was $3 for two hours and it was readily available. Only had to walk about a block.
