The museums on the Mall are all free. Good luck finding a place to eat, though; the American Indian Museum is popular. The best times to visit D.C. are March, when the CherryBlossoms bloom and October, after the summer ends but before the (mild but still annoying) winter hits. The Cherry Blossom Festival is the only the locals take it seriously, and much like Mardi Gras, you have to know when and where to actually go -- the blossoms never coincide with the actual festival. When they do bloom, millions of people descend on the Mall at once in a blossom-fueled rage. Traffic becomes nightmarish at these times, as tourists flood the city.[[note]]Note - [[SeriousBusiness This actually happens. And unfortunately for them, it's been getting earlier gradually, probably due to climate change.]][[/note]]

** The National Museum of the American Indian. The newest museum on the mall, the NMAI has striking architecture designed to look like canyon walls, and has the best cafeteria out of all the Smithsonian museums. Even Smithsonian employees tend to agree that it has the best food.

** The National Museum of African American History & Culture. The newest museum on the Mall, which opened in September 2016. It is shaped like an upside down pyramid. The building is designed after the crowns atop the figures of the carved pillars, of the Yoruba, who have origins in Benin and Nigeria.

* ThePentagon: Actually across the river from Washington, in Arlington, Virginia, this is the headquarters of the Department of Defense and the American armed forces it oversees. As with the White House, when the Secretary of Defense or the Defense Department announces a policy, it is often said that "The Pentagon Announced" as if the building actually was talking.

* The Holocaust Memorial Museum. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Rotating exhibits on UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 and various aspects of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, plus a large permanent exhibit that can best be described as a [[TearJerker self-guided, solemn tour through Hell.]] An optional aspect of said tour is to take a small dossier representing a real victim which allows the bearer to learn about said individual's fate, which rarely has a happy ending. Initially, this was part of the tour, but was made optional after visitors were overwhelmed by the experience.
