- The newly reopened White House Visitors Center is a new gem of a museum. With a new 14 minute video and hands-on displays, it is a must for locales and an important place to take visitors who can't get into the White House.
- The Corcoran - remember, this last week of displays are free this month.
- I've listed two events that charge $5 and $10 because the events are interesting and because they are in venues where many of us rarely go.
