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!

You must stop in here, just to imagine how much history there is in this place. Thinking about our founding fathers drafting and discussing our independence, the birth of our nation and the documents we still uphold today is awesome.

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.
