Roberta and I took in some of the museum yesterday. Admission is free but you have to get a timed pass either on line or in person.
We wanted to go back in the winter but I see this morning where:
Advanced Timed Passes through March 2017 are no longer available online or by phone. We will announce soon when Advanced Timed Passes for April through June 2017 will be available.
The people I feel for are out of towners. I talked with several yesterday. One came from Mississippi just for the museum, and two others combined it with work or leisure. They got tickets but I imagine others have not, and I can’t imagine what it is going to be like for the Inauguration...
But for those who go, what we experienced was fairly smooth. The Sweet Home Cafe exceeds normal museum fare and features regional speciality foods.
