Our First Spring Bus Trip Goes to Washington, DC Saturday, January 26!

For the first field trip of the semester, we’ll be going to Washington, DC on Saturday, January 26! The bus will go to the National Portrait Gallery/American Art Museum at 8th and F Streets NW in Washington, DC. Both museums are free. The National Building Museum is 3 blocks away and is $7 with student ID. You may go to any place in Washington you want as long as you’re back at the NPG by 4:30 pm to board the bus home.

(See what’s at all the Smithsonian museums here. See what’s at the National Gallery–about 4 blocks away–here. All of these museums are free.)

Ticket signup is online starting at 9 am on Monday, January 14. You must be logged into your TUMail account to sign up. Note that you can only register once. If you have a (TU) friend who wants to go, they need to register themselves. If you register them you will overwrite your own registration. Registration is limited and first come/first served. If you need a wheel-chair accessible bus, please email miss.kari@temple.edu no later than 4 pm on Friday, January 18 so an accessible bus can be ordered.

Note: in the event of a continuing US Government shut-down (with most museums closed), this bus trip will go to the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore (free!) for a Baltimore day trip. Other free things to do in Baltimore will be provided to people who sign up.
