White House > Portrait Gallery > Ford's in 1-Morning ???

I would appreciate observation/suggestions about the following itinerary.

THURSDAY (Summer Months)

- AM: White House Tour, Portrait Gallery, Ford's Theater

- Afternoon: Natural History Museum

- PM: American HIstory Museum

Questions: Is all of this doable within one day ... too much ... too little/idle time ... also thinking of lunch at Central Michel Richard ... thoughts/opinions/suggestions?

Here's a tip-the National Portrait Gallery is open until 7:00 P.M., American History closes at 5:30. I like to point this out as it may be helpful for folks planning their day. You can do an early dinner then head over there.

The Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum do not open until 11:30AM, but stay open until 7PM every day except Christmas.

Yes, so many museums in one day is too much for almost anyone. Museum overload is real.

I hope your tickets for the White House tour in the am have been confirmed? Otherwise, you can visit the Corcoran or the Renwick across the street from the WH.
