  National Museum of Natural History, Washington Monument

Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History Rotunda Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History Dinosaurs Exhibit
Our next stop was the National Museum of Natural History. This is the central Rotunda, encircled by the various exhibit halls. Of course, we spent a lot of time in the Dinosaurs exhibit.
Stegosaurus fossil Stegosaurus skeleton
I was intrigued by this exhibit of a Stegosaurus fossil, showing how the skeleton looked when it was found. And then adjacent to that was the final result of an assembled Stegosaurus skeleton.
Fossil Lab View east from Washington Monument of Capitol
It was also interesting to see this Fossil Lab, where paleontologists actually work at extracting fossils from rocks. We then went to the top of the Washington Monument, and had this great view looking east over the National Mall to the Capitol.
