Daughters of the American Revolution

Stopped by the DAR Museum. Again, it's free (this city is awesome). It's not too big or fancy, but nice. If you're interested in seeing how rooms were decorated earlier in our country's history or seeing what kinds of dishes or toys they had, then you will probably enjoy this museum. However, if you only have a limited time in DC then this isn't one of the museums I would encourage you to go to. If you're in the area and have some extra time or have a particular interest in the things here, then go, it's great. But otherwise you're not missing anything too major.

There's a small museum part. I was one of the only visitors there at the time that I went.

This doll creeps me out big time.
There were not many blonde people back then it seems like. I always see brunettes, but rarely blondes. The ratio of blondes to brunettes seems a little more even today, which I guess goes to show how many people dye their hair nowadays.

I loved seeing the old rooms. They had many, many states represented during different time periods and it was really interesting to see. It's amazing the detail they put into their furniture considering how practically everything was handmade. It's also interesting how in many ways we still decorate our homes very similarly.

There's also a library as well.
