Such a hot, hazy day in Washington DC, and we made our way to one of my kids' favorite places: The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. The kids really like the fossil area, and my youngest still calls the T-Rex "Rexy" (from the movie Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian). Two years ago, when we first visited, we got to see that movie here at the Smithsonian's IMAX!
Ready to have an awesome time!
The fossils exhibit.
Historic ocean creatures
If you give a moose a muffin...
Two little monkeys...
My kids thought it was great fun to put their hats on the monkey skulls.
Simulated cave drawings.
Early humans (new exhibit *fascinating!*)
Written in bone exhibit. (my favorite)
If you want to learn more about the museum, here is an informative video from About.com.
Had a great time!
