Tips from the community

Of all the DC museums, this is one not to miss. Here you can see the original Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. The museum also has many other interesting exhibits and artifacts on display, including the Emancipation Proclamation and the Louisiana Purchase Treaty.

  • Kid Friendly Things to do in Washington DC

    chiefseeker (Jody Vandergriff)
    Planning a family trip to Washington D.C. with your kids? Look no further than this list of kid-friendly things to do in the city. I took my 10-year-old son to DC for a memorable trip in November 2019, and it was both a fun and educational experience for both of us. From incredible museums to the grandeur of the National Mall, there is no shortage of activities to keep children entertained and engaged in learning. Here are our favorite spots from our trip. Reach out to your representative in Congress up to 6 months in advance for free tickets to many of the top sights as well as special access. Book as many popular sites sell out quickly!
