Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Because we love museums, we decided to make Museum Guides for people like us who want instant access to the most complete and up-to-date list of ALL museums in the D.C. area, even the most obscure ones. This app contains links directly to each museum's website, to give you their most current information and help you with your planning. Knowing what’s on, how much, when open, and how to get from here to there, you can concentrate on the great stuff.
After visiting the Spirit of St. Louis at the National Air and Space Museum, for example, you may need to know how to get to the Udvar-Hazy center to see the space shuttle Enterprise, or perhaps just find out what special exhibits are showing at the National Gallery of Art across the mall. Maybe you’ve got a little extra time on your trip and want to find out what nearby museums are open or have a café. That’s where the Museum Guide comes in!
With the Museum Guide, you'll get instant access to all the information you need to plot your adventure but dread hassling with, whether you’re a visitor or a native, on foot or on mass transit. And with this app, you’re not only getting the Museum Guide to Washington, D.C., you’ll also be notified as soon as Guides to the museums of other world-class cities are released.
By browsing the links to museums for current exhibitions, you can plan your trip, hone your agenda, and map out your route. Whether you're preparing in advance or need info on the spot, with the Museum Guide you'll know if your destination is within easy walking distance or which bus or train to take, where to catch it, and when.
