Many of  Washington D.C.’s museums and monuments are free, but for those that aren’t, VisiTicket’s Washington D.C. Power Pass is a great way to see as much as possible for one discounted price. The more you see, the more you’ll save, and longer duration cards are always the best value—five-day passes are $30 per day for adults and $24 per day for kids.

Attractions include the International Spy Museum, the Newseum, the National Museum of Crime and Punishment, Madame Tussaud’s, the Woodrow Wilson house, and more than 15 others. Keep in mind that some of the attractions are seasonal only, like the Duck Boat Tour or full-day bike rentals.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The DC Power Pass is no longer being sold. We recommend the Washington DC Explorer Pass. It has fewer included attractions but it is more flexible and guarantees a savings over what you pay for it.

What’s Good?

The range of activities available on the card might inspire you to go somewhere you wouldn’t have considered otherwise. If an attraction isn’t your cup of tea, there’s no money lost.

During peak season, you can save a lot of time by skipping lines.

What Could get better?

Several of the attractions are seasonal, or offered only on one day of the week.

The Open Top Sightseeing hop-on-hop-off is a good way to get around the city, and you can use it each day that your pass is good for, but you have to have it validated at their information booth each day.

Lots of D.C. most popular attractions are already free, including most of the museums along the National Mall.

Get Your Money’s Worth

Your Power Pass is activated the first time you use it to gain admission at an attraction, and this counts as your first full day even if you activate it at 5 pm. Best to save the card for your first full day of sightseeing.

The International Spy Museum (normally $18 per adult ticket) and the Newseum (normally $21.95) are great values that both get high marks from adults and kids alike.
