Welcome to the National Museum of American History. I visited and photographed the museum in 2017. The museum is spread out overy 3 stories and each floor is divided into 3 sections, east, center, and west. There's so much to see that I didn't tour all of the sections, but I got to most of them. The photos below will give you some idea of what you can expect when you visit the museum. Some of the photos may be a touch grainy because I shot everything without a flash. I also sprinkled in several video clips (some are muted) that take some time to load, so admire the pictures while you wait for the videos.
1st Floor West - Innovation, Creativity, and Enterprise
1st Floor West - Places of Invention
1st Floor West - Value of Money
1st Floor Center - Constitution Avenue Entrance
2nd Floor West - The Nation We Build Together
2nd Floor West - Within these Walls
This was an interesting exhibit; I wish I had better pictures of it. The exhibit consists of parts of an actual house and the families who accupied it from colonial times through World War II. The house stood on Elm Street in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Mostly I just have pictures of the signs about the families who occupied the house. I'm not quite sure what I missed between 1865 and 1945.
A House Full of History
2nd Floor West - Many Voices, One Nation
Hall of the American People
2nd Floor Center - Star Spangled Banner
No photographs are allowed in the Star Spangled Banner Hall, so I only have pictures of the entrance. Even that's pretty impressive.
2nd Floor East - American Ideals
I didn't visit this section.
3rd Floor West - Under Renovation
3rd Floor Center - American Presidency
3rd Floor Center - First Ladies
3rd Floor East - Price of Freedom
The actual gunboat "Philadelphia" was in its own gallery but the gallery was too dark to take picures, so I placed the model of the "Philadelphia" here in case anyone's wondering.
3 East - Price of Freedom
War of Independence
