    Headed to hirshorn now. Anyone here meet me at the entrance.

    March 8, 2014

  • Stacy

    Ok I'm at the main entrance of the museum. Magenta puffy coat.

    Still planning to be at the cafe around[masked]?

    March 8, 2014

    • Jessica

      Yes probably 1230. I'm thinking the hirshorn will only be an hour.

      March 8, 2014

  • Stacy

    Can I meetup at the museum entrance?

    March 8, 2014

  • Jessica

    My orange line metro is 20 minutes in between. I will be arriving at the Smithsonian metro station about 10 to 15 minutes late.

    Jessica, I'm unable to respond to your direct message, so I'll answer your question here. The museum is definitely doable in one hour, but a lot depends on how interested you are in the exhibits and whether you want to see everything. There are several films that would take up an hour by themselves if you decided to watch them beginning to end. I would recommend 40 min for the main exhibit (2nd floor), 15 min for the exhibits downstairs in basement, and 5 min for the sculpture garden. Definitely do try to catch that film with the exploding heads if you can...that was my favorite!

    I have changed the start time for this event to be 11am. At 11am we will start at the Hirshorn, for those who are interested. We will then grab a bite to eat at the "amazing" cafe in the American Indian Museum and then tour the museum, touring the Air & Space Museum last.

    If you plan to skip the Hirshorn and meetup with us after, plan to meetup at the Cafe by 12:00-12:30pm to continue on to the other two museums.

      Since I've already seen the Hirshhorn recently, I will meet up with the group at the cafe. If anyone

      Dang, I seem to have a real problem with that enter key. What I started to say is if anyone is interested in reading some reviews about the cafe, here's a link to yelp: http://www.yelp.com/b...­. The consensus seems to be the prices are high but worth it.

    No more lulz. Cannot make it due to time change. In conflict with my hike.

    March 6, 2014

    • Jessica

      You can meetup after your hike. See the email I just sent. Hirshorn, then cafe, then the other two museums.

    So I happened to be at the Hirshhorn over the weekend and have some intel to share. First, the entire third floor is closed for renovation. Second, the exhibit that they're currently featuring struck me as rather avant-garde, even for the Hirshhorn, IMO. Might not be everyone's cup of tea.

      Sorry, hit the return key too fast. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.co...­. You can skip to the 4:00 mark to get to the "action", if you want to call it that.

      There's definitely some interesting stuff (like a film with people's heads exploding!), but folks need to have an open mind.

    Also, regarding the American Indian museum, I have heard from several sources that the food at the cafe is *amazing*.

    Are you going to go to all 3 museums on March 8?

    February 26, 2014

    • Jessica

      I'm hoping we can make it to all three. If not, the museums that are missed are being put into a group for the last date of the tour.
