Long Description:
The museum takes visitors through an aray of America. It's 4 floors of American history. From transportation history, to history of the presidents of the United States. Here you can see Julia Child's Kitchen or Bill Clinton's saxophone. I had two favorite part. The first was seeing the American flag that flew over Fort McHenry in Baltimore. Its tattered remains are on display under dim lighting. Also the "Thanks for the Memories" section is great. Here you can see Judy Garland's ruby slippers, Oscar the Grouch, Kermit the Frog and a portrait of Stephen Cobert.
