Brenda is an incredible tour guide She explains american history very good,and she is a wonderful lady
We would have been lost without Donna!!

Donna was our tour guide, she was incredibly knowledgeable and kept us moving at a pace that allowed us to get a great "flavor" of the museum. I honestly can't imagine visiting the SI Museum of American History without a guide, people will miss so much because it's soooo big. Donna knew it like the back of her hand, and was able to answer every single question we posed, total rock-star!!
Incredible experience with a knowledgeable and fun tour guide! Highly recommend!

Brenda was amazing!!! It was so helpful to have her take us around, share her history knowledge and help us narrow down the many exhibits. She was patient and full of energy and excitement, which helped keep our ten year old interested too! Loved this experience and would definitely recommend it!

There was WAY too much time spent on dresses of first ladies and Julia Childs kitchen. This was done at the expense of the entire transportation exhibit and a very short tour of the military exhibit.

Jenn was knowledgeable and a very strong communicator- striking a great balance between children's interests (8 & 11 yrs old), and adults. Would definitely recommend.

Booking a private tour is well worth the experience! Getting to know American history and the archives behind it makes it much more personal and informative. Meghan was great!
