Know Before You Go
There's plenty of parking at the museum, but if you prefer mass transit, Metro stop 303 is less than a block away, and the Amtrak station is only a mile and a half away. Plan to spend at least an hour. The museum guides give in-depth tours (although you can opt to look around on your own). The museum closes for major holidays and severe weather; check their Facebook page or call when you plan to visit to make sure they'll be open.
