I recently visited Charleston, South Carolina and learned much about the culture and history of this wonderful town. This is one of my favorite cities to visit in the south and is in my top ten list for suggested vacation spots in the United States.
The ocean is a fascinating and foreign world which many of us have yet to explore. Ocean Hall at The National Museum Of Natural History in Washington, DC lets us explore this world.
Ocean Hall is one of many outstanding exhibits and is one of my favorites. You can enter the hall and see life size replicas of large sea creatures adorning the many cases and walls. You really need to spend a few hours to visit every display.
There are numerous interactive displays, movies, and fixed exhibits that will make you say “Wow!” while viewing. Since I love whales I was particularly fascinated by the 45 foot long model of a right whale.
You are sure to learn something about the ocean and how we explore the underwater world. Even if you don’t read any displays or watch any movies you will be impressed by the scale of the exhibits by simply walking through Ocean Hall.
Ocean Hall is located behind the rotunda housing a large elephant. After viewing Ocean Hall you will want to see the many other interesting exhibits including the fascinating and mysterious Hope Diamond.

At the end of a hall in an exhibit area hang large photos of jet airplanes whose size give the appearance of being able to flying out of the picture. The National Air and Space Museum is awe [...]

The Mid-Atlantic States have a rich colonial and revolutionary war heritage. What better way to learn our history then to follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers through the battles both in the halls of independence and on the battle field.
