Take a combo tour of the Smithsonian's most iconic museums on this convenient and engaging experience. This 5 hour private tour will lead you to the National Museum of American History before moving to the National Air and Space Museum.

Talk about Buzz Aldrin when you examine his space suit as well as moon boots and models of the International Space Station. You’ll see earlier examples of planes like the Wright Brother’s aircraft and the Spirit of St Louis. Discover the history of the world’s leading air and space program including the innovation and technology that made it possible to land a man on the moon. There’s even freeze-dried ice cream in the gift shop to complete the experience.
Then after a break for lunch, move to the National Museum of American History, which traces this ascent through a one-of-a-kind collection of items including the actual banner that inspired the country’s national anthem. Learn about the first president, George Washington, while viewing his sword and discover how Hollywood has helped shape this country when you check out Dorothy’s ruby red slippers. Discuss segregation through the Greensboro lunch counter and the role of women through the first ladies’ gowns. This tour will help you to understand the turbulent history that has marked the United States of America.
