Way too much on 7/2 and 7/5. Newseum could take a full day on its own. More than 2 museums per day is probably too much unless you are running through them.

Move some of it to 7/3 as the Nats game is a 6pm game so gates open around 4pm or so.

Tuesday and Friday are impossible. Tuesday you would be spending a lot of money for 3 pay museums. Spy & C&P each really need 3-4 hours. Newseum takes 2 whole days.

I'd suggest switch Arl. Cemetary to Tues. afternoon then walk over to Iwo Jima for the 7:00 p.m. Marine Corps Sunset parade.
