The Smithsonian is huge and is comprised of at least five buildings. I only got to visit one of them. It would take two weeks to adequately visit all of them, spending all day prowling. I was really interested in the inaugural dresses of the First Ladies and the china used by the different administrations . . . . no one would be surprised at that one! There was also a section that showed the progression of various transportation methods and then a section that paid tribute to Julia Child. However I must go back to see the rest, including some of the famous jewellery of the world.
