With smaller crowds and less territory to travel in summer heat, and with so much of our country's origin happening here, I thoroughly recommend this over DC as a place for kids to be introduced to history. DC would mean more after this!

There really isn't much to do on the mall, but it is a nice place to relax if there are outdoor activities going on. Make sure you visit the Visitor's Center for info on surrounding places.

I would say 1.5-2 hours should be good. If you rush and try really hard you can finish it in 45 mins - 1 hour. If I were you I would skip Mutter Museum if I run short on time.
