Day 5 in DC

February 23, 2012

Our first stop on our tour of DC was the Newseum. The museum holds five centuries of news history, we got to see historical articles dating back to the 1400’s. We had the opportunity to see a piece of the Berlin Wall, as well as the antenna from the World Trade Center. The museum held everything from sports articles to the Gutenberg Bible. We spent almost four hours exploring all the museum had to offer.

We also went to the Museum of American History. Here we explored the first ladies inauguration dresses, Dorothy’s ruby slippers, the original muppets, Julia Child’s kitchen, The Star Spangled Banner,  Thomas Jefferson’s Bible, and so much more.

In the evening we went on a walking tour of DC monuments at night. We got to see the White House, The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, The World War 2 Memorial, The Korean War Memorial, and the Vietnam Wall. We even had the chance to stand where Martin Luther King Jr. made his famous “I have a dream” speech.
