Top 3 Things to See on a Washington DC Class Trip

GO Educational Tours believes that a class trip to our nation's capitol is a rite of passage for American students. Fortunately, Washington DC offers a wide variety of educational activities appropriate for a class outing. We've created a "must" list of the top 3 things to see on a Washington DC class trip . They are all educational and entertaining.  While there are many of museums, memorials, and activities in the area, this list includes highlights in the interest of making your trip as fun and diverse as possible.

1. The Spy Museum

There are so many amazing museum in DC, but the new International Spy Museum is hands down the most entertaining. As the museum indicates: dedicated to the tradecraft, history and contemporary role of espionage, featuring the largest collection of international espionage artifacts currently on public display. It's one of the few museums in DC that you will have to pay for, but it is far worth the price of admission.

2. The Lincoln Memorial

It is a  must for anyone making the trip to DC. A few important moments that took place there are the Gettysburg Address and Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech. Located at the end of the national mall, this one is a bit of a cheat for this list since there is so much else you can see nearby. For example, after you pay your respects to our 16th and perhaps most influential president, you can head across the street to the Washington Memorial. There are also many war memorials nearby. Not to mention the price is right - FREE!

3. The Supreme Court Building

Witness democracy at work by visiting the Supreme Court and Library of Congress. Court is open to the public and trained docents can give you a short introduction about the history, architecture, and functions of the court. Many politicians cite this experience as what made them get into politics, so perhaps someone you take will also be inspired to change our country.

In order to know where we are going, we must know where we came from. This applies to us as individuals as well as to our country. 

Make them part of a 4 day Washington DC School trip experience.
