Smithsonian, Washington, DC - 6/30/2003

East Coast of USA (2 of 9) :

On this day we went to visit the Smithsonian - which has the world's largest and most impressive museum. It's contained in 12 or so building. We visited the space museum which has really extraordinary exhibits such as Apollo 11, the Wright Brothers aircraft, The Spirit of St Louis and other unique aviation artifacts of the 20th century. Any of the exhibits would be a worthy centre piece in any museum. To see all this stuff in a single location is quite a sight.

We also visited the cemetry at Arlington, the Marine's War Memorial and the Pentegon.
