Afternoon in Museum close to Union Station?

Jump to last reply

We are taking Amtrak in to Washington on Thursday early June, arriving about 11:30 AM. We are staying with friends but they aren't picking us up until 6ish. We thought we might take in a couple of the sights walking distance (bad knee - can't do the metro because of stairs). Maybe walk .5 mile to a museum/place of interest and then another .5 mile to another and then cab back to Union Station (where our luggage will be) Last time we were in DC, we mostly rode on the trolley - saw most of the art museums/White House/Capitol/Arlington so want to see something different. We will be coming in later to see American Museum of Natural History and the Building Museum with our friends.
What would you suggest that's within our limitations? We'll pick up a bite to eat at Union Station for lunch.
Thanks for your help!
