Walk off the Turkey at the Smithsonian

How about a side of art and culture with your feast of Thanksgiving activities?  The Smithsonian museums will be open on Thursday, November 25, and some will have extended hours through the weekend. This is good to keep in mind if the kids get antsy while they’re waiting for turkey dinner or, of course, if you’re entertaining out-of-town guests.  Museum hours on Thanksgiving Day are 10am – 5:30pm, except for the American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery, which are open 11:30am – 7pm.
