National Geographic Museum
The National Geographic Museum is great for all ages and features a wide range of changing exhibitions, from interactive experiences to stunning photography exhibitions featuring the work of National Geographic explorers, photographers, and scientists.
Welcome to one of America's most interesting collections of human history, the National Geographic Museum.
This Washington D.C staple attraction serves as both a museum and headquarters for National Geographic, offering guests a one of a kind look into the world of Nat Geo.
Inside this museum, your group will find a variety of rotating exhibits and programs year round. The museum hosts various traveling exhibits so it is hard to say what exactly you will see during your visit, but we can give you a good idea by listing off a few very popular past exhibits, such as the Tomb of Christ (see video below), Titanic, Sharks, The Greeks, Pristine Seas, and Mars Up Close.
If you are visiting in the spring or summer of 2019 you will see Queens of Egypt, an in-depth look at such influential leaders as Cleopatra VII and Nefertiti, as well as over 300 authentic artifacts. There is also the one permanent exhibit you will see here, National Geographic: Exploration Starts Here. This covers Nat Geo's 'greatest hits' so to speak, with items such as Robert Peary's North Pole camera, and secrets from places such as Machu Picchu and the Titanic.
Get ready for a visual and mental exploration unlike any other in Washington D.C.
