National Museum of Natural History

Recommended
The National Museum of Natural History, part of the Smithsonian Institution, ranks as one of the most visited museums in the world. Two floors of exhibits and an IMAX theatre explore life on Earth through clues left by nature - dinosaur skeletons, prehistoric fossils and precious stones - and objects fashioned by human cultures. The museum's ongoing research programmes have resulted in one of the largest, most comprehensive natural history collections in the world.
