INTERNATIONAL SPY MUSEUM

HOURS:  Check website for hours
So much fun!  You'll truly understand the world of the spy as you walk through this museum.  Displays of both government and civilian spy equipment.  Play along with a spy role-playing game as you walk through the museum.   Be sure to watch some of the informational videos as they provide some great insight;  and are interesting enough to keep most family members interested.  I would recommend this more for older children as the younger ones do tend to get bored quickly and make it less enjoyable for the rest of the family.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-  The museum is very interactive.  Even the informative videos are interesting enough for children.
FAMILY FRIENDLY CONS-    This place is busy!  Expect a long line, especially during peak tourism times

NAVY MUSEUM
805 Kidder Breese SE, D.C.   202.433.4882
National Museum of the U.S. Navy

COST:  FREE
HOURS:  Mon - Fri 9 am - 5 pm, Sat - Sun 10 am - 5 pm
This self-guided tour facility will take you through the eras of Naval history from the revolutionary war on.  There is a great variety of exhibits.  Ask for a scavenger list at the museum front desk and let the children have fun trying to find the items.  The museum has mostly permanent displays but also has a temporary exhibits section which changes several times per year.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-  The scavenger hunt kept this interesting for all ages.

 

Family Friendly Travel Tip:
Older children can use time in the car or airplane to learn a new craft.  There are some great books about learning to knit, crochet and cross-stitch.  Your child will be occupied and have a sense of accomplishment when they have completed a project by the end of the journey.
