Washington's Best Museum Exhibits & Programs For KidsOthers
Planning a museum trip to DC with the family this fall? Here are our tips for Washington’s top kid-friendly museum exhibits and activities that you need to see. The outdoor sculpture garden at the modern art marvel Hirshhorn is always a hit with the kids. Children will love getting to view the sculptures and take in the art without needing to abide by the no-talking rules of most galleries. Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20024 (202) 633-1000 Young ones are bound to love getting to see the “America On The Move Exhibit” at the Museum of American History. They’ll get to learn all about the history of transportation—meaning cars, motorcycles, trains, and planes—in a fun, interactive setting. Adults, meanwhile, can also enjoy the museum’s many historic objects and exhibits. 14th St and Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20001 This much-loved pair of galleries, which showcase the Smithsonian’s collection of Asian and Middle Eastern art, is the perfect place for kids to enjoy a day out. We recommend heading to the Imaginasia classroom, where kids can enjoy art workshops and family-focused programming. 1050 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20560 (202) 633-1000
