Whether they’re three or 13 years old, they’re bound to find dozens of awesome artifacts from important events in American history at the Museum of American History.

Budding artists can create their own masterpieces during free art workshops at the National Gallery and the Sackler Gallery of Art’s ImaginAsia. Two-to-six-year-olds can build towers, explore a playhouse and pretend to be a dump truck driver at the National Building Museum’s Building Zone.
