We live in NW DC near the National Zoo. We hopped in a Car2Go and drove 17 minutes to the intersection of Primrose Rd NW and Sudbury Rud NW in DC. We parked the Car2Go on Sudbury, just about 100 feet from the DC-Maryland border. (With Car2Go, you could just drive it to MD, but you'd have to continue to pay for your trip while it's parked there! If you park in DC you can "end your trip" and stop paying for the car!)
From the car, we used Google Maps to take a pleasant 2 mile walk through a quiet residential neighborhood to the museum. I recommend you walk north on Grubb Rd, take a right on Washington Ave, continue on Sundale Dr, zigzag over the train tracks on Talbot Ave, swing a left on 3rd Ave, then Warren St, then left on Linden, then you're there! It's not as complicated as it sounds -- just Google Nav it, but this route is the most residential and very quiet with nice sidewalks all the way there.
Total Car2Go cost roundtrip was $16, which certainly is more expensive than the metro or bus, but very convenient! The point is, there's no reason to complain that it's not near a metro stop. Whether you take Car2Go, or the bus, or the metro, you won't have to walk more than a couple miles to get there!
Exercise, people!! You are going to a museum of HEALTH after all!
