Washington DC Districts

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.

Capitol Hill is one of Washigton DC's most historic districts. Pierre L'Enfant described the crest of the hill as "a pedestal waiting for a monument" and shortly arfterward, in 1793, George Washington laid the first cornerstone of the United States Capitol building, which now stands facing the city and the National Mall. Behind the Capitol building is the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Union station, at the northern end of Capitol Hill, is not only Washington DC's main rail terminal, but also one of the most popular tourist attractions due to its recent renovation.
