About the tour

Join me for part 1 of this outdoor walk featuring the Smithsonian Institution museums and the great national park which we call the National Mall. Due to the closures for security and for Covid-19, this will be an outdoors-only tour. This Eastern portion of the Mall tour, will feature a discussion and view of the U.S. Capitol. Due to security concerns, we cannot get close to the Capitol Building but you will still be able to take some nice photographs. We'll then see the National Gallery of Art Buildings, the Native American Museum, the Air and Space Museum, the Smithsonian Sculpture garden and the Hirshhorn Museum of Art.

I wish I could have done Terry’s tours before I visited from the U.K. She has a wonderful in-depth knowledge of the history of the area right up to the present day which she presents in an easily digestible way. Great tour.
