Natural History Smithsonian Family Guide + Passport


I created this Natural History Museum Guide after 10 years of living in the area and learning that this Smithsonian did not have a guide for families. We LOVE this museum and have been half a dozen times. Main attractions include the Hope Diamond, Live Butterfly Room, Dino Fossils, and Mammal Hall.

All You Need for a Stress-Free Museum Trip with Kids!

I love that the Smithsonians are free to visit but it can mean crowds and it's easy to get overwhelmed with all that's available! This guide takes the guesswork out of planning a fun and easy day for everyone.

1) Museum Guide = 6 pages includes:

  • Know Before You Go (Best time to beat the crowds and parking tips)

  • Age-Specific Pages (Babies and Toddlers, Elementary and Teens)

  • What is open now in 2022

  • 3 Can't-Miss Exhibits for each age group

  • Kid-Friendly Food Options nearby

  • Gift Shop Alternatives for each age group

  • And much more! (best restrooms, nursing areas, daily free activities!)

2) Passport download for your Kids

  • Your child can Personalize the first page

  • Pages for each Smithsonian Museum in DC with spots for them to fill out what they liked in the museum.

  • The last page is a "Stamps" page for them to cut and paste after they visit


An 11 page PDF will be emailed to you directly upon purchase. You can print the pdf or read it on your phone where all the links are clickable. You will receive any updated versions automatically.

Testimonies from DC Parents

"These guides are lifesavers! The Smithsonian museums have so much to offer that it can be easy to get swallowed up in all the exhibits. These guides help me focus my visits on the parts of the museum that have the biggest impact on my kids. I especially love the "Mom Tips" - I've been visiting Smithsonian museums for years and didn't know half of them!" - Elle, Mom of 4

"Living in the suburbs, we love visiting the museums year-round. My kids love filling out their own Passport for the museums! They now see it around the house and ask when we can go get another "stamp!" - Will, Dad of 2


I hang out most days on Instagram and would be happy to help with any questions! 😄
