Thanks, JJ

Although the exhibits change and the museum itself was extensively renovated, it brought back some nice memories. I went to the museum a few times whenever we had relatives visiting from Iran.

Thank you for sharing.


Thank you JJ for a very educational tour!

I learned something today.

Also I loved your comments under Carter's picture. Very true.

That was one second-rate museum! It's as if they decided to collect all the things other museums rejected. I'm sure glad I never wasted my time there. :-)


Jahanshah jan,

Now I know what you were talking about....... Thanks for introducing a place in my “neighborhood”! And yes the dinner was fun too - at least for me :-)


very nice!

Great job JJ

I loved the pictures and the captions. Not too fond of the modern art section, but that's me...  It was like a history lesson/art appreciation/sightseeing all wrapped up in one.

Next time I'm in DC, I will definitely make time to see it.

Thanks so much!  hope the dinner was fun too.

I had missed this one, too!

Very nice! You shared both the surprise and the museum really well. This museum had gone past me, too. I was going to ask where the video was, but went back and saw your caption. Thank you and have a great time!
