So - I'm headed to Washington for a week visiting my sister -

I wanted to see the Peacock Room, but it closed last month for renovations until next year.

So - what should I check out at the Smithsonian?

2. Check out their site: http://www.si.edu/Events

We loved the Hirshhorn.

If I were going, I would visit the American Indian Museum. It wasn't open the last time we were in DC.

3. LOTS of stuff at 'The Smithsonian,'

so choose what strikes your fancy.

The Smithsonian Institution—the world’s largest museum and research complex—includes 19 museums and galleries and the National Zoological Park.

Most Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo are free and open every day of the year except December 25. For hours of operation, see information on planning your visit or select a museum from the list.

Note: Additional Smithsonian exhibitions and events can be found in the S. Dillon Ripley Center on the National Mall.
