Has anyone been to this (http://www.ncm.museum/events/135) before? Oops, it is actually a National Children's Museum event. I put National Harbor since the National Children's Museum is rather new.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't trust National Harbor to do something cyclist-friendly if their life depended on it.

Didn't they host the start of the MS ride last weekend?

I was told on multiple occasions that they didn't welcome bikes there, didn't want them on the roads within the harbor, and have been asked to lock up at the entrance and get around on foot.

Sounds very cool. Have you been to the Museum? The Marbles Museum in Raleigh, NC (also a Children's museum) was such a big hit that our toddler asked to drive all the way back to Raleigh to go back.

Of course, National Harbor is almost as far (kidding).

There's no way I could go to this, but if anyone knows any way for me to get Kidical Mass flyers there, please let me know.

Haven't been, but I've heard the 3 and under crowd love it. Pretty sure you could bike to it.
