When you think of a baby play area, you probably don’t picture the world-renowned Smithsonian Museums, right?! Surprisingly, I have found these museums to be wonderful place for both babies and toddlers after years of visiting. In fact, one of the first places we took my now 6-year-old daughter as a newborn was to a museum because she was a winter baby and I needed to get out of the house!
I guess everyone in our family caught the museum bug as we have now completed a bucket list challenge and visited all the DC Smithsonians. Below, I’ll share more below about why museums are great for this age and which museums are best for this age. I also have a lot more in-depth info on my website, Family Trip Guides including the best times to go to each museum to avoid the crowds, parking tips and food options in/outside the museums.
And 20 Museums for Children in DC here!
