The museum's main entrance is located on the corner of First Street and Massachusetts Avenue NE. Other entrances have variable hours.
Objects are the core of a museum’s reason for being. They connect us with people and stories of days gone by, allowing us to better understand our past and even use that knowledge to reflect on our present.
