DC Idea of the Day:

Indoor options:

If the weather isn’t cooperating, you can check out the recently opened Box of Delight at the NMAI. while you’re on the mall, be sure to dive into the Hirshhorn to see the excellent Yayoi Kusami exhibit. We did both a few weeks ago and they were pretty much empty. And, as always, take a look at our Fall Calendar to see the full list of seasonal events.

Another exhibit of note is the three floors of DC’s newest museum, Planet Word. Also note that the National Archives underwent a significant renovation about 10 years ago. If that school group visit back in the 1990s is the last time you were there, you should duck in on the next rainy day.
