    Oh, and the Holocaust Museum if we think our son can handle it.

    If you go to the back of Mount Vernon and look straight across the river - that's where I lived for four years.

    Are the Cubs in town?

    If you have to question if your son can handle it, then it might not be worth visiting right now. Go when he's a bit older, so he can fully appreciate how horrific the event was.

    For a quick bite near the National Mall with kids, we did &pizza on E street when my brother and family were in town and ate at a lawn near the Archives. Only one size pizza, though, so order just enough or be prepared to toss the leftovers.

    For a dinner out, I second Jaleo.

    &pizza is a chain, if you're into that, OP. But there's better pizza elsewhere: Wiseguys, We The Pizza, etc.

    It’s a tough one. We did with our kids at 12 and 9.
    The African-American museum is great, even tough the slave stuff on the bottom level is properly somber.

    Baltimore is a dirty, ugly city.

    I went to the Holocaust Museum when I was 16 as part of a class trip. It was sobering as expected. Not sure I would have been prepared for it any earlier in my life than say age 14 ...

    Yeah, that's fair. We live within driving distance anyway, so we can go at some point in the future.
