I found this little museum when I saw signs for it while walking near Dupont Circle. While small, it is well-curated with interactive exhibits. You can view photos and see artifacts from a number of conflicts. Appropriate for families with older children.

This is a small museum, but contains some interesting artifacts from the Revolutionary War and beyond. Although it tries to focus on Jewish participation in the military, many exhibits are more about the wars themselves. Still, if this is your interest, I would go. Free....More

This small but moving museum has just opened its beautiful new permanent exhibit on Veteran's Day....a most fitting date since it honors all veterans, but in particular Jewish veterans who have and still are accused of not serving in our military. It traces Jewish military...More
