This is a hallway that had marble sculptures. The sculptures were amazing. There was such intricate details craved into the marble pieces. I would just stand there and stare at the beauty.
This piece is a sculpture of the first African-American units of the Civil War. This is a bronze monument by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. You can see the depth of this piece. The detail again is amazing. I sat in that room for some time just looking at this piece.
Now this is the foyer area of the Natural History Museum. The museum was closed for a while to be refurbished. The grand elephant is what you see when you enter the museum. There is sooo much to see. Since we live close, I have visited the museum for field trips with my children. We got to see the Hope Diamond and all the many beautiful gem pieces. I also saw the largest octopus!!
If you have a chance to visit DC plan to spend some time in the museums.
