On the same Virginia trip I mentioned in my last post, we headed into DC for the day. We had time for one museum, and ended up picking one of my favorites, the Museum of Natural History. My favorite exhibit is the Hall of Geology, Gems, and Minerals, and on this trip, I was struck again by the brilliance of the natural colors. They’re too pretty not to share!
Like all of the Smithsonian museums, the Natural History Museum does not charge admission, so if you ever find yourself in DC, I would highly recommend a visit!
