Hours vary*

"Dupont Kalorama Museum Walk Weekend is the perfect excuse to explore D.C.'s "off-the-mall" museums. In addition to a wide variety of exhibitions, many sites are offering special programs in keeping with the "live green, love local" theme." Click here for schedule of events and here for a list of the 10 participating museums in the area.

"Enjoy period music from 12:00pm - 2:00pm on Saturday and Sunday and bring a picnic to the gardens at Dumbarton House, stop by The Textile Museum's Celebration of Textiles to make a recycled seed packet to take home with zinnia seeds, take part in Jazz n' Family Fun Days at The Phillips Collection and celebrate the memory of a loved one in a creative and artful way at the National Museum of American Jewish Military History. Unplug the ipod and GameBoy and try out a board game from the 1920's at Wilson House."

Refreshments will be available for sale via several of D.C.'s beloved food trucks throughout the neighborhood, including Sweet Green and Carmen's Ice.

*Please note that not all museums will be open both days. Event held rain or shine.
