When I was living there I found February to be the
best time to visit, of
course it was about the worst time to be outside :^) Summer and Holiday
weekends were something of a nightmare.
Hands down, the best time to see the museums in DC is Christmas eve. The
town is deserted. My family and I have turned that day into sort of the "let's
the Smithsonian day." Last two years have been great. We were actually able to
park our vehicle on the street next to the mall. That's basically unheard of any
What gets me is it sounds like the computer exhibit at the Museum of
American History hasn't changed any in the last 10+ years. Though it sounds
like the Aerospace museum has updated their exhibit some. I'm pretty sure
it didn't have a MicroVAX II the last time I was there, of course that was
in '93, so it could simply be faulty memory on my part.
