History is always an interesting topic of exploration. Washington, D.C. is filled with a plethora of historical structures, monuments, and museums. I love being an event photographer here because there is never a shortage of historical or political affairs happening in a city so rich with history.
You certainly couldn’t observe all there is to see in a day or even a short trip. But I definitely recommend exploring some of the great landmarks and sites that Washington, D.C. is known for. Regardless of whether you’re just visiting or a long-time resident. One place I highly advise putting on your list is The National Air and Space Museum. In my opinion, it is one of the coolest and most dramatic venues. It houses the largest collection of historic aircraft, including the original Wright brothers’ plane and countless notable warplanes. If you’re an event planner, there are few venues so impressive.
It’s also home to one of the biggest spacecraft collection in the world, which contains a vast collection of objects from early aviation up until the present day. It’s amazing to have the opportunity to wander around the museum before it opens in the morning, so if you’re ever fortunate enough to attend a private event, be sure to arrive a little early so you can check out the exhibits. In terms of meeting space, having the backdrop of air and space history and all the science surrounding it is incredible. This event was held in one of the circular rooms, which makes things much more visually interesting. Don’t forget to add this beautiful museum to your list. You won’t be disappointed. It’s one small step in the itinerary, one giant leap in education!
Getting to be a part of capturing the history in action as a Washington, D.C. Event Photography artist is such a great experience.
