Smithsonian Institute Castle, Washington DC


Who doesn't enjoy traveling to Washington DC, USA? I really had fun visiting most of the museums which are funded by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.  I guess, there is no one who is willing to sacrifice all of his/her wealth for the purpose of research and education unlike, the founder of James Smithsonian. James Smithsonian was a British chemist who donated all his fortune for the development of the Smithsonian Institution in the United States.

The Smithsonian Castle was built in the remembrance of the founder of James Smithsonian which is located on the National Mall in Washington DC, USA. It is open to visitors for free entrance where you can read the stories about James Smithsonian and his projects.

This is a list of Smithsonian museums open from 8:30am to 5:00pm daily which are funded by Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. Those popular and famous Smithsonian museums include Air and Space Museum,  Natural History Museum, American History Museum, National Zoo and many more which are funded and open to visitors for free in Washington D.C. only.

To learn more about the list of Smithsonian museums and the locations, you can visit the official website at http://www.si.edu/Museums/american-history-museum

** I will share the photos of these museums in my upcoming posts. **
