What Metro stop to use for specific D.C. sites?

Hello, At what Metro stop(s)do I get off to
visit the Holocaust Museum and the WWII monument? Are they a mile or so from the stops or more than that? Walking distance? Also, how close are they to each other? Thanks in advance for the help you all share on this board.

Smithsonian for both. Definitely walking distance. Good directions/info on the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the National Park Service websites (do a google -- not sure if I can post links to other sites here).

The Metro has a pretty good website if you haven't already found it - this URL takes you right to the map

You can get off at the Smithonian Stop (Blue Line). It is two blocks away from the the Holocaust Mesumeum. The Holocaust is close to the WWII

We found that once we got off the Metro there was always something else to see within walking distance and we never got back on.

If you start on one end of town, say the Capitol, you can just make your way toward Arlington National Cemetery at the other end of town and see most everything.

We bought a Metro day pass and didn't end up using it.

You might also find this site helpful -- if you click on a station name it'll bring you to a detailed map of the area.
