Living near Washington D.C. provides access to an incredible number of museums. Located less than 30 miles northwest of the nation’s capital, our apartments in Germantown, MD offer luxurious community living and access to some of the country’s best cultural sites. While you may not be going out right now, you can still bring the exhibits home with these virtual tours of museums near Germantown.

National Museum of Natural History

There are seven different ways to enjoy this world-famous museum virtually. Tackle them all at once or visit once per day for an entire week. You’ll be able to do everything from seeing digital images of artifacts in 3D to learning from some of Smithsonian’s very own scientists. You can even take tours of the museum’s permanent, temporary and past exhibition collections. Imagine traveling to Ancient Egypt and Iceland in the same day.

Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Some of us would rather launch into the sky than stay on the ground. If that’s you, then don’t miss the seventeen exhibits that the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum has made available for online viewing. Learn interesting facts like Hawaii is one of the most remote places on Earth and that it wasn’t always easy to access by plane and photographs taken in space have been inspiring famous artists for centuries. Learn all about flight and space by bringing these amazing exhibits right into your home.  

Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

The Hirshhorn Museum is home to one of the most important collections of 20th-century art in the world as well as significant works created by contemporary living artists. You can view over 12,000 pieces on their website, but it doesn’t end there. The Hirshhorn staff has selected weekly artists that will virtually bring you into their home studios for an exclusive sneak peek into their techniques, creativity, and lifestyles. Perhaps you’ll even feel inspired to create some art of your own with their how-to classes.
