Living in PG County, MD: First Lady Dress Exhibit - Washington, DC

First Lady Dress Exhibit - Washington, DC

One of the beauties of living near Washington, DC is the availability of amazing museums and galleries.

The Smithsonian museums are located in downtown Washington, DC.  Some of the museums located on the National Mall are the Natural History Museum, Air & Space Museum, National Gallery of Art, Museum of the American Indian, and The Holocaust Museum.

I enjoy trips to the museum but I had never been to the Museum of American History.

My husband, kids and I decided to pay the museum a visit to see the First Ladies Dress Exhibit.

The exhibit shows the dresses that many of the First Ladies of the United States wore on their husband's inaugurations.  

My daughter and I enjoyed seeing the dresses up close and seeing the differences in fashion over the years.  We had very distinct favorites and some that we absolutely hated.

Though the dress exhibit was definitely my family's favorite there are also many awesome exhibits that give a dynamic representation of this country's history.

I have a great pix taken at this exhibit!  It is nice to see those well recognizable dresses in person!  And now this new one.

We have only been to DC a few times but this was my favorite museum.  We were surprised at how much we enjoyed it. We thought Space & Air would be our favorite and we did like it but we liked this museum more.

Stacey Ann,

It's my favorite museum at the Smithsonian. Can't say that the dresses are my favorite display though.

That sounds like so much fun!  I am always fascinated by the artistry and time that must go into dresses like that.  Love that white one - who did it belong to?

That's a great excursion to take the family on. It is a blessing to have such a wealth of museums close by. My personal favorite is the Holocaust museum, but since the shooting I have avoided it.

Pat - It really was amazing to see their senses of style in person

Marchel - I like this one better than Air & Space as well

Rich - The Natural History Museum is my favorite

Brenda - That dress belonged to Michelle Obama

Ellie - I haven't been to the Holocaust museum in a long time - time to go back.

Stacey-Ann - I am sure there are a lot of great things at the Museum of American History. Who wouldn't want to take advantage it, especially for the price.
