The Kuehners have been visiting Washington DC. Daddy has been working a lot in the DC area lately. So we have been going with him to keep him company. I am way behind blogging about our adventures. We are actually in our 3rd week in DC, and I am just now starting to blog about our first week here. We actually were able to spend a day in DC a few years ago, so our goal was to not duplicate any of our adventures. Although I did make an exception. The Smithsonian Museum of American History is one of my favorites. So we did do that again.
This is from the cottage of the person who owned the land where Washington DC was started. David Burnes owned the land and negotiated with George Washington to put our nation's capital here.
This was a neat museum to visit. The Smithsonian museums are free and have some very unique and neat items to see. The next couple weeks we will be posting all the sites we have seen around DC.
If you are looking to spend a lot of time at this location, it's not really that big. I would budget about an hour of time at the Castle. There are two art museums located by the entrance that are also free to visit. We did not visit those yet, but plan too. The 3 museum complex could be covered in about 5 hours, with lots of walking in each of the buildings.
