National Museum of American History

Look in detail at the rich heritage of the United States

Spanning three floors and containing numerous exhibitions the National Museum of American History looks in detail at the rich heritage of the United States in the areas of social, political, cultural, scientific and military history. The museum is home to more than 1.8 million objects, from the original Star-Spangled Banner to Abraham Lincoln’s top hat; from the first computer bug to the first artificial heart; they are preserved here to help people understand the past in order to make sense of the present and shape a more humane future.

Student groups can try out various activities, such as sending telegrams by morse code and performing various experiments in the interactive Science Center.

Open daily and with free admission for groups.
