Facing History: Girl Scout Programs

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 up to two months in advance. For questions, please contact Beth Evans at evansb@si.edu.

Upcoming Programs

Chaperones, please register under chaperone registration. All tours meet at the museum's G Street entrance.
