Facility:Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
Description:Major Natural History museum. Best known for its rocks and minerals exhibit, which goes far beyond the famous Hope Diamond. The Orkin Insect Zoo often has docents who will encourage kids to touch unusual insects and listen to their sounds. The Hall of Mammals contains lifelike stuffed and mounted animals in very realistic poses, and the Ocean Hall includes a bright and entertaining live coral reef exhibit with beautiful fish. There are extensive exhibits on prehistoric life, dinosaur fossils, the last Ice Age, early mammals, and the evolution of man.

Scientists can be seen working in the FossiLab, and kids can work hands-on in the Discovery Room. Special Home School program for individual families is available in the Discovery Room by reservation on Friday mornings.
