National Museum of American History

We had booked the entire month of May at Cherry Hill Park in College Park, Maryland, to serve as a base for exploring around the Washington D.C. area.


We had heard of the Smithsonian Institution as being "America's Attic".  Here are a few random images taken in the National Museum of American History.

It looks like Lazy Daze Motorhomes may have a new competitor!  I wonder if kayaks are available instead of a canoe?



Steam locomotive Jupiter built in 1876



Electric cars had a very early start.

The Revolutionary War gunboat Philadelphia was built in 1776, sunk by the British later the same year, and recovered from Lake Champlain in 1935.
