Description

The National Museum of Natural History is one of the most impressive sights to see in Washington, definitely a must see. Towering life-sized replicas made out of real dinosaur bones stand in rooms with vaulted ceilings. A huge White Elephant greets visitors at the main entrance and beckons all people of all ages to explore the wonders within.

Opened in 1910, the green-domed museum on the National Mall was among the first Smithsonian buildings constructed exclusively to house its national collections and research facilities. Seasonal and temporary exhibits are always in rotation and range on many topics dealing with contemporary and historical natural events and phenomena.
