Pop culture paraphernalia shares exhibit space with presidential possessions in the National Museum of American History. This repository of significant Americana includes such national treasures as Dorothy’s red slippers,Abraham Lincoln’s top hat and Kermit the Frog.
Lindsey’s pick: After recently watching the movie “Julie and Julia,” I was really excited to see Julia Child’s kitchen in the exhibit. It’s not the biggest exhibit,but make it a point to see it.
Jorge’s pick: Stanley the Autonomous Touareg: Across from Julia Child’s kitchen is Stanley,the autonomous Volkswagen Touareg that won the 2005 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Grand Challenge. Come on,it’s an SUV that drives itself. That’s pretty cool.
