Mostly I just wanted to see the First Ladies Exhibit which showcases the inaugural gowns from Mamie Eisenhower up to Michelle Obama (and the inaugural shoes and jewels too!) It. was. awesome.
Michelle Obama's inaugural gown. Those Jimmy Choos off to the right are a size 11.
Hillay Clinton's dress on the left, Laura Bush's on the right.
Next we visited Julia Child's kitchen.
Asher was nonplussed.
I saw Catwoman's suit. It was snazzy.
Some original Muppets.
And THE ruby red slippers.
I was feeling guilty for skipping Thomas Edison's light bulb and decided I needed more history and less pop culture, so I popped in to see the Star-Spangled Banner which was... very large. And so old and fragile that photography is not allowed.
