Washington, DC — June 2018

The National Museum of African-American History and Culture and the Washington Monument

13 photos at the U.S. Botanic Garden

19 photos​ from some of the places I visited. (View each photo individually to see the captions.)

It's been more than 20 years since I was last in Washington. I wanted to visit the many new museums I had never seen.

The weather was hot and humid, but I was indoors most of the time. It rained one afternoon, but, again, I was indoors during the rain.

I'm a rapid museum-goer. I rarely spend more than a couple of hours in any museum. Here's a day-by-day rundown of what I saw:


  • Dumbarton Oaks Museum and Gardens — Better than expected.
  • The Phillips Collection — OK. The featured exhibit was good.
  • National Geographic Museum — Less than expected. There is a small permanent exhibition in the back building, and that is free. But you don't know that when you enter at the front, where you pay for only two exhibits, one of which I was not at all interested in seeing. There are also some fine large photos in the display windows all around the front building.
