I spent this morning at the National Museum of American History. There are tons of cool things in this museum representing all aspects of American History. When I got off the metro at the Mall, the sky was beautiful blue behind the Washington Monument.
I got to the museum about five minutes after it opened so it wasn’t very crowded at first so I went downstairs to check out the Science in American Life exhibit and see Julia Child’s kitchen. I loved how she had outlines of all the tools and pans drawn on the pegboards.
The museum has lots of very large exhibits; cars, trains, and even a whole house rebuilt inside the museum. There is even a Greensboro connection – a section of the counter from the Woolworth’s store downtown where the sit-in movement began.
