After reading The Wonderful Night of the Museum, you must know that many scenes are taken at the National Museum of Natural History in the United States, such as talking stone people, moving elephants, and so on. So you can't miss this museum when you come to Washington, not only because it's free. Before I came here, I always thought it must be very big, but the fact is not so. The natural part is not much. Instead, what attracts me is the ore and jewelry part. For the first time, I know which minerals gold, platinum, copper are extracted from, and then I am amazed by 1000 carats of diamonds. It's definitely worth a visit.
It is more suitable for taking children. There are many animal exhibition halls. There is a large statue in the main hall on the first floor. It is not a sculpture, but a real specimen of wild African statues. There are also treasure exhibitions, all kinds of gems, diamonds and related jewelry, all kinds of raw stone and so on, which are colorful and dazzling.
The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is the largest museum of natural history in the world. There are museums, evolutionary history and Paleontology (e.g. ancient mammoths and dinosaurs). There is a physical exhibition of various minerals. The treasure of Zhenguan is a huge sapphire.
Very good pavilion, worth recommending. There are many exotic treasures and a series of explanations on natural animals.
