One of the best things about living in our nation’s capital is having the chance to visit so many incredible Washington DC museums whenever I want. From the iconic National Museum of Natural History to the innovative Newseum, these Washington DC museums never fail to impress, no matter how many times I visit. The other awesome part? Admission at many of them is entirely free!
1. National Museum of the American Indian
Heading up my list of amazing Washington DC museums is the National Museum of the American Indian, which offers free admission throughout the year. Located on the National Mall as part of the Smithsonian Institution, this museum tells the story of tribes from centuries ago through today. Don’t miss the Our Peoples: Giving Voice to Our Histories exhibit, which highlights 500 years of indigenous history, and be sure to wander through the gift shops admiring gorgeous handmade pottery and rugs. Getting hungry? The museum’s restaurant – Mitsitam Cafe – serves up delicious Native-inspired food.
