Find & Seek Hunt and Highlights Tour at the Smithsonian and National Mall in DC

Join ART SMART on a hunt and cultural tour of the best, most exciting works of art and culture the Smithsonian and National Mall have to offer. For the hunt, you and your group will have to find (but not grab!) all the cultural objects on our list of highlights in the Smithsonian and around the National Mall. Your personal art historian will be along to offer clues, answer questions, and provide historical context for each work of art you find.

If you’d prefer to skip the hunt and let the art historian lead the way just let us know and we’ll organize the tour accordingly. Either way, you’ll get a broad art historical overview that encompasses a range of styles, media, artists, and cultures. Each tour can be customized based on the number, ages, and interests of your group members.
