Scouts participating in My Heritage program

The Smithsonian American Art Museum offers Girl Scout programs that meet requirements for Brownie Try-Its, Junior Girl Scout badges and Cadette interest project awards. Senior Scouts are invited to contact the Education Department directly with their proposals. Girl Scouts who live outside metropolitan Washington, D.C., and unable to visit the museum in person, can participate via real-time videoconference.


In-gallery and videoconference Girl Scout programs are offered October through May, last approximately 45 minutes, and are available free of charge. Reservations are accepted for weekdays until 2 p.m. including Monday Federal holidays.

Scouts who complete any museum activity will receive a Smithsonian American Art Museum patch.
