Walk Weekend 2017 will be held Saturday, June 3 and Sunday June 4 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. (Please note, the NMAJMH will only be open on Sunday). Walk Weekend is held rain or shine.
How do I get around during Walk Weekend?
We encourage everyone to get out and walk! The museums are within easy walking distance of the Dupont Circle metro stop. Alternatively, there are several buses that run near our sites as well as the capital bike share. A direction page is coming soon!
