Washington, DC is known for the plethora of Museums and Galleries available. Rightly so! Here is a comprehensive list to help guide you on your adventures. Please note that all Smithsonian Museums are free to enter and even offer camps, classes, and sleepovers.
Insider tips when Museums and Galleries: arrive early to beat the crowds. Take public transportation if possible. And a super insider tip is to always stand to the right and walk to the left when you are on escalators. If you are driving, download the Parkmobile app to easily pay for parking.
