It's FREE! This is definitely one of the venues in DC that is well worth visiting. It is a little overwhelming to take it all in, but I would judge the 3 hours an average time to see the museum in its entirety. The history, significance and experience of the Holocaust Museum makes it a must see…
Adjacent to the national mall. It’s America’s official tribute to Holocaust history. Incredibly moving.

“Launch into the history of flight by surrounding yourself with icons of air and space travel. The flagship building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C, contains twenty-three galleries exhibiting hundreds of aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, rockets, and other flight-related artifacts. The museum has a planetarium and an IMAX theater for out-of-this-world escapes. The museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, in Chantilly, Virginia, houses many more artifacts in an open, hangar-like setting, including a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird and space shuttle Discovery.”

“A popular memorial, the National World War II Memorial was dedicated in 2004 to the 400,000-plus Americans who died during the war. A circle of 56 pilings (representing the then 56 U.S. states and territories) looks over the Rainbow Pool. At night, with lights shining, this memorial can be quite ethereal.”
