- Fixes an issue that caused the app to quit when opening the side menu on the home screen
Ratings and Reviews
For an official app from the Smithsonian Institution, I expected much better. The app is difficult to navigate for a DC visitor just looking for a quick map.
Once you find the map within the menu, it’s very glitchy - if you click on one of the places, a handy pop up displays the museum/monument name, aaand then won’t go away. I’ve had to force kill the app & restart to see other points of interest.
There’s an interesting “My Favorites” menu item that sounded useful for a tourist. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to actually add anything to said Favorites, but finally noticed if I searched for something (again through the main menu) I can then add the museum/exhibit/etc to Favorites - very clunky.
I downloaded the National Park Service’s National Mall app (whew there’s a mouthful), and so far it’s exactly what I was looking for. You’re probably better off with that one if you’re looking for more of a Mall-area tourist app.

I chose the extended hours link and got an error. Tried that with several of the museums. I had to use Google to find out info. Other than that it is good.
Great! They must have fixed it.
The other reviews are old. It shows all the museums on the home page and you can click on the map that shows them all. Click on a museum and it give you hours, floor plan by floor, description, etc. what else do you need? Yes it requires an 85 mg download after install.
