I am always amazed with the many museums that constitute the Smithsonian. The American Museum of American history does not disappoint. In my mind, I tend to believe I am familiar with American history and realize how little I know when I arrive at this museum.

All I can say about this place is ... it is nothing less than magnificent. I could imagine that you will never be "finished" with this place, that you find new things and details in paintings and other works of art from time to time. Is a "must see" place in Washington D.C.

This is a very large museum. I decided not to try to see it all. Walked just a few of the galleries, so I could truly enjoy the wonderful art. Wear good walking shoes!
