Washington DC Landmarks and Attractions

The National Museum of American History is an ever growing tribute of America's past. Once the Museum of History and Technology, much of the display here concentrates on the history of science and technology and the effects on the American way of life. The 'information age' exhibit gives a fascinating view of present day technology and offers some interesting predictions for the future. The cultural and political displays provide a good overview of some of the most important events in American history and give a concise history of popular culture.

Located across the Arlington Memorial Bridge from the National Mall, the Arlington National Cemetery is the resting place for 250,000 Americans that died either at war or in service of the United States. Some 4 million visitors come to the the 612 acre National Cemetery to pay respects to the distinguished Americans buried here, among whom are former president John F Kennedy and his family, General John Pershing and the crew of the Challenger Space Shuttle. Arlington House stands at the top of the hill in the Arlington National Cemetery and provides a stunning view of Washington DC. The Tomb of the Unknowns serves as a memorial to the many unknown American Soldiers who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.
