Washington DC 2012, part 2

 No trip to DC is complete unless you spend time in the museums.  With a group as diverse as ours we split up to see as much as possible.  The Aerospace Museum is a must see, even if you're not into aviation.

The Wright Brothers flyer.
 The Kitty Hawk exhibit honoring the Wright Brothers and their success on flying was on display here instead of Kitty Hawk NC.  It was a beautiful exhibit.
The Spirit of St. Louis nose cone with everyone's signature.

Saturn 5 engine cone


 From Air and Space, next stop:  the museum of Natural History.  From rocks to fossils, to dinosaurs to mammals; you can spend an entire day there and not see it all.  I think this was my 3rd time here.
