Best DC Museums
Natural history appeals to all ages! There are artifacts that you can’t possibly see them all in one visit. The dinosaur exhibits, the Family Hall of Mammals, and the Sant Ocean are fascinating and great for adults and kids. Then there's the cinematography and scenery in the IMAX films that's simply stunning.

This museum spans two buildings, an East and West Wing, showcasing priceless artworks from Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, John Singleton Copley, Johannes Vermeer, Vincent van Gogh, and Henri Matisse.

For cutting-edge modern and contemporary art, don't miss the Hirshhorn. It's a Smithsonian museum located in a stunning, drum-shaped building. After walking the gallery, head downstairs to the gift shop and Barbara Kruger's installation on the Lower Level lobby. Tips: Free 45-minute tours are available every daily at 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Meet a Gallery Guide at the lobby information desk at that time if you're interested. Or hang out in local coffee chain Dolcezza's new cafe in the refreshed lobby space, designed by artist Hiroshi Sugimoto and unveiled in 2018.

The Phillips Collection is not to be missed for art lovers, with pieces by Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Winslow Homer, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh. The Rothko Room with four paintings by abstract expressionist Mark Rothko is a particular favorite. Tips: Tickets run from $8 to $12 per visitor, and visitors age 18 and under are free. The first Thursday of every month is "Phillips after 5," a popular event that runs from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (buy tickets in advance if you can).

The museum is a memorial to the millions of Jews who died during the Nazi regime in Germany during World War II. The exhibits tell the horrific story of genocide and teach the dangers of hatred and prejudice. Visiting this museum is an emotional experience so be sure that you have enough time and stamina. The permanent exhibits are not recommended for children under 11 years old. There is a separate exhibit for ages 8 and up that tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of a young boy.
