    Not all museums display only Renaissance paintings and sculptures of Greek gods. When travelers are planning their visit to Washington, D.C., this spring, they may want to take some time to explore the new exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution's American Art Museum to learn about the history of video games.

    This unique display of a video game timeline includes game consoles, screenshot images and other fun exhibit features, reports Discovery News. There may be a hot debate over if video games are an art form or not, and this demonstrations leaves it up to guests to decide.

    Little ones may especially love the areas where they can play classic video games on large projection screens. Adults can delight in this as well, as it can bring back great old memories about how much this industry has evolved over the years.

    Entrance to the museum is free and the attraction welcomes all visitors to experience their wide variety of exhibits. While in the city, travelers may also check out some of the other complimentary museums, such as the National Gallery of Art or the Natural Museum of Natural History.
