Rediscover Local Museums with Family Trip Guides

By DullesMoms, Sept 2019

Living in Northern Virginia, we sometimes forget how lucky we are to be neighbors with the District! We forget that people from all over the world plan a vacation to see the buildings, monuments, and museums that we drive by so often.

Maybe it’s time to rediscover some of these things, and Jennifer wants to help make that happen!

Jennifer is the editor and mom behind Family Trip Guides, a resource dedicated to museum-lovin’ families with kids of all ages. She’s a pro at navigating places with children, especially Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC.

Check out Family Trip Guides online, explore these articles, and check out these guides. A few DullesMoms favs include:


Kid Favorites at the Natural History Museum
Hidden Gem of DC: The National Postal Museum with Kids
3 Kids Favorites at Smithsonian’s Museum of American History
Family Friendly Food Options Near the Museums

Organized by age: babies-toddlers, elementary age, teens:

National Museum of American History (free download!)
National Air & Space Museum
National Museum of Natural History
National Zoo
National Postal Museum
National Museum of African American History & Culture

After you explore Family Trip Guides online, connect with them on Facebook and Instagram, too!
