A new museum.

With the shutdown we had to get creative with our DC exploring for my dad's visit. There are many museums that aren't nationally funded {= you have to pay} so we chose one that wasn't too pricey and seemed interesting to us {my dad loves photography}; the National Geographic Museum

And? It was a great find! For $11 each we got meander around three main exhibits. I kind of loved that we were able to see the whole museum. I love the Smithsonians because you don't need to worry about packing it all in since they're free and most pay museums are too large/expansive to cover in one visit. 

We most enjoyed the main exhibit which focuses on photography by women photo-journalists. This was the greatest because it covered a large variety of topics and there were explanations/back stories for each photo. 

Then we checked out the "Lions, Tigers, and Bears" exhibit which was awesome because it wasn't too big and the pictures were amazing; I loved seeing a spirit bear!

The last part we checked out was an exhibit on the history of the National Geographic. This was cool because it had a ton of different topics covered in not too much detail so it was manageable.

We actually started out the day exploring the Georgetown neighborhood and after the museum we enjoyed dinner at Ben's Chili Bowl.

All in all, it was a great day and I'm sad my dad's leaving soon but we at least get one whole day tomorrow in Baltimore tomorrow!!!
