Cultural destinations often fall into one of two camps: totally for kids or not really at all for kids. We found a slew of museums that cater to everyone, offering programming that is sure to educate and entertain kids and parents alike. Start your exploration by flipping through this slideshow of the country’s best museums to bring the kids!

Make News – Washington, D.C.

Pulitzer Prize photographs are displayed here, portions of the Berlin Wall and Twin Towers stand here, and you can see the U.S. Capital from its rooftop. At the Newseum, budding journalists can even practice their first on-air newscasts or visit history with virtual reality. And a news helicopter hovers amongst it all. Free admission for children six & under and discounted admission for those seven & up. The education component of their website also has phenomenal tools on media literary and First Amendment freedoms—invaluable knowledge for any school-age child.
