The National Museum of the America is part of a chain of museums that overlook the National Mall in DC.

The museum looks very nice from the outside so you should take a picture there.

When you are inside, it can get very busy with all the tourists.
The museum operates on four floors with sections devoted to special exhibits. My favorite exhibit was with the US Presidents where you can go through galleries learning more about all the people who have been presidents of the United States.

However, there are a lot of other wonderful exhibits. Much of the displays are larger than life and offer a wealth of information.

I recommend this museum.

Outside it looks like just another office building in D.C., inside however it is a grand beauty. What was a former Masonic Grand Lodge, the National Museum of Women in the Arts has crystal chandeliers and a grand staircase. Encompassing four stories of art and sculpture, I recommend using the elevator to go straight to the top of the building and just working your way down.

My favorites are in the middle levels. On the second floor there is a balcony with the temporary exhibits. I like the diversity and the talent projected and the way that it is presented to the viewer. On the third floor there is the permanent collections. Celebrating women artists from the 16th century to the present, there are some real beauty trapped in the canvases. The museum is home to works from such women as Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo.

There are self guided tours and while there is no admission charged to the Museum, there is a donation request. Usually the donation is around $3 for an adult and $2 for children and students. It is located a little out of the way in downtown, and is hard to get to. I believe it is worth it to give kudos to the fine women that have graced our senses with these paintings.

PROS: good history for the empowerment of women
CONS: very underfunded it seems

The coolest part of the museum was the entryway with the spiral ceiling. There are very few exhibits/artifacts and way too many television screens. You could view all this from home at your computer.
