Welcome to Washington, D.C.

Virtual Washington D.C. is an online field trip designed to help you explore the Smithsonian Museums in the US Capitol. The Smithsonians are located at the Smithsonian Mall, at the walking distance from such tourists' attractions as the White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, as well as the US Capitol Building.
Specifically, the Smithsonian Museums are located in the area between the Washington Monument and The US Capitol Building. Following the map (below) you will be able to cover all these exciting places!
Starting the tour at the Lincoln Memorial, we will then "walk" to the World War II Memorial, to the Washington Monument, and then "step aside" to take some pictures of the White House. After that, we will return to the Smithsonian Plaza and visit the Newseum, the National Museum of American History, and the National Archives.
Finally, after lunch at the National Gallery Food Court, we will proceed to the US Capitol Building and enjoy the Sunset, watching a concert by a Marine Band on the Hill.
