As a mom, I know visiting a Smithsonian museum with teens is VERY different than with toddlers! Each museum is organized into 

1) Babies and Toddlers 

2) Elementary Age 

3) Teens

Top 3 Can't Miss Recommendations

A fellow mom gives you the Top 3 Can't Miss Exhibit recommendations for each age group at each Smithsonian museum so you can have a place to focus instead of feeling overwhelmed! 

"If you're running out of time!" Recommendation

 The Smithsonian museums are National Treasures but they can certainly be overwhelming with or without kids so I tell you what you can skip out on for each age group at each museum.

For each age group at each Smithsonian museum, we provide ideas for alternatives to the dreaded Gift Shops. Fun things you can take away or activities to spend a little money on to make wonderful memories!
