American History Museum
We could only choose only one Smithsonian museum to tour during our museum day and we chose the National Museum of American History. Mom wanted the girls to see the Inauguration Gowns and First Lady china patterns.
I noticed that the dressed weren’t presented in chronological order and were mixed between older and modern styles. Each dress showed how tall and size of each first lady.
Right across the hall of First Ladies I found Abraham Lincoln’s original top hat and it’s considered one of the Institution’s most treasured objects.
