CHARGE ADMISSION FOR ALL

THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD CHARGE ADMISSIONS FOR ALL SMITHSONIAN VISITS. $10.00 FOR KIDS AGES 5-12 AND $20.00 FOR ALL OTHERS. THIS WOULD HELP WITH THE COST OF UP KEEP AND SALARIES FOR SECURITY. STATE AND LOCAL CITIES CHARGE AND SO SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT. PEOPLE WILL PAY TO VISIT, I WOULD.
