    The new year old exhibit on the oceans is one of the best exhibits in any of the Smithsonians.

    Always take Metro. Parking is a bear. Make sure you leave plenty of time to see the entire museum. One could spend at least 5 hours there.

    For something so lovely, the 45.52-carat jewel of the Smithsonian Institution has a sinister tale. Several owners of the blue diamond have suffered misfortune, including Marie Antoinette. See it here. Leia mais

    The gems & minerals section is awesome (the Hope Diamond is currently on display)! Allow yourself at least two hours to explore. You could easily spend a half day wandering around!

    Cafes are convenient but extremely over priced. Mcdonalds, subway and the post office pavilion are right out 10th and much cheaper.

    The female giant squid is about 40 feet and incredible. Makes u wonder how big the adults get if she's just juvenile .....

    Make sure you check out the whales over head too. I'm pretty sure it says that whales started in the early oceans, then moved to land for a few million years before becoming ocean creatures again!
