So my sons (13 and 7) are asking to visit DC on Saturday. We drive down from Gettysburg to Shady Grove to take the Metro in. Some quick questions:
-Other than some G8 issues that may or may not happen around Thurmont, MD, are there any planned events on the DC end that might impact a trip?
-The youngest wants to go to Natural History, and the oldest to the Hirshhorn. I was thinking of arriving at Natural History at 10 and then going to the Hirshhorn after lunch...but it is the last weekend for Song 1. Should we shift our plans to later in the day? (I think it's neat that my oldest wants to visit the Hirshhorn, but I'm not entirely sure of how interested he will be. I do know that they both love Natural History. I guess my question is, is Song 1 something that kids would enjoy?)
Thanks so much for any advice...
