It had been a while since my last visit to DC, but I was there again just last week - great to be back! And I've seen almost everything worth seeing, with several exceptions including the International Spy Museum. So off I went - and it was indeed a way cool experience!  So much fascinating stuff; one of the things I was most hoping to see was info on the murder of Bulgarian dissident Georgi Markov in London with a poison-tipped umbrella. And sure enough, there was the umbrella - well, not THE umbrella, but a replica.  Some of it was a little 'Hollywood,' but hey, I don't begrudge them that. Overall, highly recommended!!

Hi, everyone! If you are looking for an educational getaway, consider staying at one of the many Virginia bed and breakfasts that located near some excellent museums. Virginia is a state rich in history, and that history is commemorated with such a huge variety of museums.

Hartford, Connecticut is a museum-lovers' paradise, home to the Mark Twain House & Museum, the Wadsworth Atheneum (the oldest art museum in the country), the American Clock and Watch Musuem, and many more.

Azulejos de Azeitão uses the European traditional methods of tile making and reproduces antique design from European countries like France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and other , but also Islamic and Chinese.
