Favorite thing: The National Museum of Natural History is a fascinating place. Located on the mall at 10th and Constitution Avene, NW, the museum has collections in anthropology, mineral sciences, paleobiology, botany, entomology, invertebrate zoology and vertebrate zoology.

The dinosaur exhibit fascinates youngsters.
