FACING HISTORY: Girl Scout Programs:
All Girl Scout program dates have been booked for the 2014-2015 academic year and we are not accepting any new registrations at this time. Please check back in mid-August 2015 for upcoming 2015-2016 academic year program dates. Thank you.

The National Portrait Gallery offers exciting interactive programs that allow Girl Scout Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes an opportunity for an educational and culturally enriching museum experience while earning points toward Girl Scout Legacy badges and Journey completions. Programs are offered during the academic year (October to May) on Saturdays, as available, on preselected dates. Programs are approximately two hours in length and include:
  • An interactive tour of the National Portrait Gallery, showcasing women who have made a significant contribution to American history and culture, including the portrait of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA
  • A hands-on activity in the Education Center
We are now booking programs for the 2014-2015 academic year. Click on the program registration packet below, to register for the following programs:
