This past weekend was the Dupont-Kalorama Museum Walk. Several of the off-mall museums participated and free shuttle bus service to/from each of the sites was provided.
I went with the plan of hitting at-least two of the museums, the Textile Museum and the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site. Me and a friend started at the Textile Museum and quickly got side tracked by all of the fun exhibits and hands-on learning activities for kids.
Being the "big" kids that we are, we fully participated in all the learning fun. We learned how to cross stitch, reverse dye fabric and created hats. In amongst the glue and glitter we whiled away the afternoon and didn't see the inside of the Textile Museum and missed the Bethune House by 30 minutes (even though we thought we had 30 minutes.)
Next year I'll be more judicious with my time and make sure to actually see the inside of the museums.
