Thinking of a trip to Washington DC with the kids....

We already have a few 'must see' places on our list but I wondered what some of the other good museums were. We have the Air & Space museum and the National Zoo on the top of our list. And my 7 year old wants to see the Lincoln Memorial and the White House. Any other ideas? We'll be there for 2 1/2 days in October.

We just went before school started, the air and space museum took over 5 hours to see, just so you know it is huge. I loved the American history museum, and the museum of natural history. We didn't do the zoo, we had no time, we had 2 full days. Have fun!

Yeah...I think we're going to have to skip the zoo. We have one here. The air and space museum is a must. Did you go to the one near Dulles? That's the one we're planning to go to. I hate having to cram everything in so quickly! We're only going to have 2 full days too. But I guess the monuments don't take long. We're not going to do tours or anything.

The spy museum is supposed to be really fun. Haven't been yet but it's on our list for the next trip.
