Smithsonian Lockers?

Hi:

I was talking to a friend who's recently been to DC. I asked her what she did with her purse/backpack when they toured the White House. She said they put them in the Smithsonian Museum lockers. She said they all have them and they're free!

So far, I haven't read that in my guidebook. Is this true? I know I will want my camera, etc., after I take the tour(s) and I don't want to have to travel all the way back to my hotel to get my stuff.

See

And remember that most of the museums do not open until 10:00 a.m.

Besides all the SI museums that have lockers (get your stuff out 5 minutes before it closes), the National Gallery of Art has an Checkroom area. Note that its hours are 10 AM-5 PM Mon-Sat, and at 11 AM-6 PM on Sunday.
