The Smithsonian is located right in the middle of DC, and you can visit it at any time when you come to the city.

There are docents that will take you around the area, or you can take a walking tour that will lead you to many different parts of the museum. You will get lost in one of the busiest cities in the country, and it will all be a part of this one museum that has cataloged all of American history perfectly and beautifully.
