    Booking in advance was one of the best decisions because when we arrived there were a lot of people who wanted to get in at that time. We didn't even take 5 minutes to get through.

    The museum is in high demand so I recommend booking in advance with a guide to get to know everything in great detail.

    There is no doubt that a visit to Washington must be accompanied by this type of activities and probably this has been the highlight of my trip.
