National Building Museum

Washington, DC - Museum

The National Building Museum is a great spot for Kids. Has a stunning Great Hall that is free to enter and then paid exhibits highlighting the history and engineering of US buildings. Also has a great play area that I would highly recommend getting early tickets.
