U.S. Department of the Interior Museum

Description And Comments

C and E Streets border the huge Department of the Interior to the north and south, and 18th and 19th Streets to the east and west, respectively. The Department of the Interior manages conservation of federal land, natural resources, and indigenous peoples and its headquarters – called the Stewart Lee Udall building – also contains a museum dedicated to related art and artifacts. The museum is free and open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. A building tour is also available that includes the beautiful murals found throughout, but only 20 people are allowed at a time so reservations are a must. Call (202) 208-4743 to book a spot on one of the tours, which set off Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 pm.
