Tour Details

A La Carte Tours are bookable on a private or semi-private basis. A private tour guarantees you a personal guide. Semi-private means you MIGHT be touring within a larger (but still intimate) group. 8 person max for both.

The National Museum of American History has lovingly been referred to as 'America's Attic'. The objects in this museum tell the story of our nation. From politics to pop culture, war heroes to sports icons, this museum has it all. This isn't just a pile of stuff - they're the artifacts that define our past. 

See Abraham Lincoln’s Stovepipe Hat and Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers before wandering over to Muhammed Ali's boxing gloves. After this, we'll see the Star Spangled Banner and brighten up the day with Edison's light bulb!
