The US Botanic Gardens had a wonderful holiday exhibit, A Midnight Clear, that featured fantastic scale models (in all natural materials) of the major buildings around the National Mall in Washington, DC. There were models of the Botanic Gardens itself, the Capitol, the Washington Monument, the Supreme Court, the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, and the Smithsonian Castle. A large holiday tree inside the Garden was surrounded by miniature townhouses with a model railroad winding throw them. Outside the Garden were several more model trains, too, in a miniature natural landscape with suspension bridge, trestle bridge, and covered wooden bridge.
