"The Gardens on the National Mall" National Mall Tip by Tom_Fields
National Mall, Washington D.C.: 84 reviews and 149 photos
While travelling between museums on the National Mall, don't forget to stop and smell the flowers. At least have a look, and enjoy a break from what can be an exhausting pace of life in Washington.
The National Sculpture Garden is well worth a visit. Located around the Hirshhorn Art Museum (on the south side of the Mall), they contain some fascinating works of modern art. OK, they're not for everybody, but worth taking a look.
On the north side, near the Museum of Natural History, is the Butterfly Habitat Garden. And in the middle is another beautiful garden. Don't just walk on by.
