National Museum of Natural History

One of my favorite things about DC is that there are a plethora of free museums all over the district (although... is it really free since they're funded by our tax dollars?). One of the downsides to it being free though is that it is almost ALWAYS packed with tourists --ourselves included. Despite that, we spent the week visiting various museums. Yesterday we visited the National Portrait Gallery, today the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
