The bulk of the museum is in a section called Our World, which aims to teach kids about biodiversity, travel, what kids are like in other cultures and countries, and a sense of connection to their own homes and neighbors. A special 3 & Under section encourages toddlers to develop their fine motor and problem-solving skills via exhibits which invite them to pretend they’re driving a car, serving lunch, and more; this section includes a sensory-stimulating Infant and Crawler Zone for babies 12 months and under.
Parking is available at various private lots near the museum (the closest in the St. George Garage) or on the street. The museum is connected to Washington, D.C.’s Metrorail via the National Harbor Bus Line (NH1); to pick up this bus, take the Green Line to the Branch Avenue station on the Metrorail. The museum is adjacent to the NH1’s St. George Blvd. and Waterfront St. bus stop.
