If you are enthralled by images of nature, foreign landscapes, and exotic cultures, a visit to the National Geographic Museum is a must! Here, you can behold exhibits such as explorations of the Etruscans, reproductions of DaVinci inventions, a pictorial display of Machu Picchu, as well as fifty years of photographs of American presidents taken by the official White House photographers.
Similar to the much-loved magazine, the photography on site here is all breathtaking, inspiring, and educational. In addition, you can enjoy wonderful events that include live music, dance, film series, and lectures by Nobel Laureates. Visit the museum's website for dates and descriptions of all upcoming programs.
Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for kids, and the museum is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
