Tour of All 17 of Washington DC's Smithsonian Museums
The Smithsonian Institution encompasses some of the world's the best-known and most-visited museums. This tour takes visitors through Smithsonian museums, most of which are centrally located around or near the National Mall. These museums preserve and interpret collections of historical and anthropological artifacts, art, and natural history. This tour includes the Smithsonian institutions on the National Mall as well as some that require the Metro such as the Anacostia Community Museum and the National Zoological Park in Woodley Park. Although this tour cannot be completed in a single day, we did our best to arrange the tour in a way that minimizes travel and utilizes the Metro for the museums beyond the National Mall.
