The weather was hot outside, comfortable in museum. I wore good walking shoes - a necessity since you cover a lot of ground and standing..

The tour is about two hours, but the museum is worth much more time. I suggest you come early or stay late. If you stay late, I would ask Stephen for suggestions. He appears to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the place!

If you take the Yellow or Green line to the Archives station the National Gallery is just a block away. Much closer than Red line.

The hunt is in the West building and the meeting place is upstairs by the coat check on floor 1.

Go with a small group rather than alone. It takes a lot eyes to find all the clues.

There isn't always a lot of parking on the Mall on the weekends, so keep that in mind.

Don't drink too much beforehand since you don't want to waste your scavenging time in the bathroom.
