Five Things for Today: March 3, 2021

A view from within the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden


1. The Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden has reopened again with daily hours 10am – 4:30pm.  You can make a whole outing of touring all of the outdoor areas of the museums on the National Mall.  The Enid A. Haupt Garden, National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden (11am.- 4pm), Pollinator Garden, and more small Smithsonian gardens are all open to visitors.


2. A new post went up yesterday with a great round-up of book recs for little ones. There was some trouble with the link yesterday (apologies!), but all should be good now.🤞


3.  Throughout March, kids can join the NOAA Live! Virtual Open House webinar series, and “visit” a few places where NOAA works across the country. Explore the hangar where NOAA keeps hurricane hunter planes, come inside the nation’s oldest public aquarium, sniff seafood at a NOAA seafood inspection lab, visit “mission control” where NOAA commands satellites in space, dive deep into an underwater sanctuary, and more – all from home!   The free events are geared toward 2nd-8th graders, and they’re perfect for classrooms and families.  There is one today from 4-5pm, and many more dates coming up.  Register here.


4. From DCist: What You Need to Know to Get the COVID-19 Vaccine in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.


5. It’s easy and fun to get sucked down the rabbit hole of Architectural Digest’s YouTube channel with tours of celebrity homes.
