Maddie Grant: Awesome music school, taught by actual practitioners of the various arts.

Gina Lee Thomas: My daughter is a freshman at Duke Ellington. She has wanted to attend the school since she was six years old. She LOVES it. Duke Ellington School is such a wonderful experience for these children. Kids who are driven by the arts are special. These kids find it difficult to navigate in some school environments. Ellington is a place where they not only survive…they thrive!

National Gallery of Art: what do users think?

Terry Bexton: AWESOME art. Absolutely unbelievable to witness these masterpieces in real life. I was astonished by the gift shop as well. Most people that know me know that I LOVE gift shops, and this one was definitely one of my new favorites. It had all the different art related things a person could think of. Absolutely would recommend this gallery to any art lover.

R Lin: I’ve been to the Gallery of Art a few times now, and it really just never gets old. It would also take at least one entire day to truly get through everything that’s there (the museum is HUGE, and has more than one building), so when I say it never gets old it’s the honest truth. There’s something new pretty much every time because there’s a back corner or section you accidentally missed the previous time. This place is beyond easy to get lost in. It’s definitely an iconic Smithsonian, and worth seeing. But again- this place is massive! Schedule a big chunk of your day if you want to see a lot of it, or else prioritize the works you want to see and grab a building map to help you stay on track (there’s a good chance you’ll still get a little lost). You get to see some true, original and iconic pieces here. I think it’s also fun seeing where the Gallery got the pieces from. If you’re at all a souvenir person you’d better also visit the gift shop (again, view the building map and follow signs because it can be tough to find). Love this maze of a museum!

Shravya Boppana: FANTASTIC! This is a great place to visit for all ranges of art lovers! It has such a wide range of art that is a ranged in an easy to digest walk through. The interactive guide through the app can help with understanding the history behind the artist and art, which is great for people who are just beginning in the art scene as well. It is a must visit!

Evan S: A free museum with so many fabulous paintings! The Van Gogh selection was amazing.. if you have time check it out! It was so easy to get in and out.

Kevin Shim: No entry fee. Wear a mask. This museum has a good collection of art. From early Rennaisance to modern. Da Vinci, Raphael, Vermeer, Degas, Monet, Degas, Rothko are the highlights of this museum. It’s laid out in a way to showcase how our perception of art has evolved over the years. The East building holds all the modern art. The underground concourse that connects the West and East building is worth checking out.

James Walker: During my weekend visit, I experienced the Cherry Blossom Family Celebration with traditional music, that drew large crowds. Inside the Kogod Courtyard was the flower exhibit, showcasing Orchids. Finally, took in the artwork that covers several levels of this huge building. Take the stairs or elevators to get around. Restrooms on all levels, souvenir shops and a cafe are currently open.

Hilda Kroll: Now is a great time to visit the Kogod Courtyard during the Orchid Exhibit. Always interesting exhibits to see as well as the permanent SAAM and Portrait Gallery collections.

Shaopeng Yuan: Very beautiful building and good place to meet up with friends to spend a weekend.

Junhyun Park: Very interesting place!! A lot of history and people including the presidents, founding fathers, American natives, artists and celebrities. I could learn a lot from this fantastic museum.

Raul Jauregui: Figurative masterpiece assembly. Absolutely perfect way to learn US history through images. And a lovely building with original tyle floors upstairs.

Len Oppenheimer: Amazing "stop and stare" portraits of American names in history.

Arts Club of Washington: what do users think?

Perks Advisor: This Club is sandwiched between the White House and George Washington University. It is a private club but open to the public during certain hours. The historic building is worth the visit and you can visit certain rooms that have art hanging on the walls. You can also use the facilities for events. If you enjoy art and a quiet atmosphere this is a very nice venue.

Bob Craycraft: Great membership organization and four art galleries open to the public at no charge.

BRASH BRASH: This was an unexpected treat for me. I received an email about a dinner theatre production about the pending election and decided to go. The location is quite historic and beautifully furnished. There are documents signed by early presidents on the walls. The courtyard in back was charming and features a relief of a bygone scene. Though it is a private club for artists and collectors, the location has regular openings and lectures revolving around the arts. The event I went to was affordable: $40 for a buffet dinner, a 90 minute musical, and a dessert spread afterwards. The members were all very friendly and informative, lively and welcoming.

Paul A: Nice historical place with a conference room for meetings.

Margaret Jones: You have to check website on when can see art or events open to non-members. Can also sign up on email list.

Marie-B CDA: This "temporary" White House is a very elegant home where exhibits, concerts, lectures, poetry readings, ballets are hosted and fine lunches and dinners are served. Every room is elegantly decorated and in the spirit of Monroe. The garden is a nice additio.. The Club offers membership to Artists and drawing/painting classes are taught. A very pleasant place to visit or become a member.

Dr. Laura Reid: It is a beautiful facility with a beautiful grand piano on the second floor. And houses a lovely space for meetings

Michelle Peete: Small art museum nestled close to GW University. A great venue for intimate events. Large patio area for outdoor activities. The food was adequate. Great service.

Jeffrey Kipers: Great place for event such as a wedding reception

B W: I absolutely love this school! I am moving soon and will greatly miss the instructors and even the new friends I’ve made. The instructors are very patient and are passionate about teaching. I have learned so much from attending workshops and several 9 week courses!! I wished I could pick the school up and move it to my new dwelling place, but since I can’t, I will leave an awesome review :) To all the instructors, Thank You! Thank you for giving of your time and knowledge to us the students! We are better artists of all kind because of you! I can only speak for myself, but I grew by leaps and bounds in my craft from being connected to this school! I am ever so thankful for the brilliant mind who was blessed by God to start this school years ago. The education I have received was just as good or better than paying high priced tuition at a university. I pray nothing but continued blessings upon this institution!

Nabil Elhalawany: I am a medical Dr. interested in Art.

Latrina Proctor-Jones: Luv Art all forms...😀

Norraine Miller, MS: Really enjoy the visit

National Museum of Women in the Arts: what do users think?

G M: Really nice museum. The architecture was amazing with the marble staircases and all. The art work was also nice. The photographs were really cool. Especially the one of Lucille Ball.

Syerra Carigo: Beautiful museum! I’ve been here once before and was a little disappointed in the lack of art from women of color but I must say that has changed tremendously. I visited 2 weeks ago with my cousin and we were both happy to see new exhibits by female artist of color. They have a great collection of work right now that everyone can enjoy. The art work is beautiful, meaningful and touching all at the same time. It isn’t free and the tickets sell out fast, so I would definitely recommend buying a ticket before you go. They do have Covid safety precautions in place, so you have to stay 6 ft. apart and wear a mask.

Hilda Kroll: The NMWA opened in 1987 as the only museum in the world dedicated to women artists. The permanent collection features artists like Lavinia Fontana, the first successful professional European artist, to Amy Sharald, now famous for painting the beloved portrait of Michelle Obama. Special exhibits over the years have included a Danish art colony, quilts, Australian Aboriginal paintings, pottery by Maria Martinez, Rodante fashion and massive cedar sculptures. The museum is temporarily closed now for major renovations.

Liat Suvorov: This museum is exceptional! The exhibitions are beautiful and thought provoking. The visit was inspiring and exhilarating. To have this as my first cultural experience after the year we all had (the year of covid-19) was the perfect way to get back to life!

Katy Ferry: What a wonderful museum with so many amazing pieces in it! It had everything from oil paintings, to sculptures, to fiber art. The staff was helpful and friendly. Definitely check it out!

Sharon: great museum, the architecture is phenomenal and everybody was super friendly. tickets are very affordable— i didn’t have time to check out the gift shop but i definitely recommend coming here!

Daniel Sweeney: We hosted our wedding reception here and It was absolutely gorgeous! The marble was cleaned and looked great with our setup. The facility was well maintained, and security was helpful. We could not think of a better place to have had our special night. The acoustics were even better than we would have thought. Plenty of space to dance as well! Additionally, it is a Unique quiet Museum in DC. Some very interesting art work, all done by women through history.

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts: what do users think?

Amanda Turcotte: I love being a member of the Kennedy Center. I joined during the pandemic because I wanted to support the arts and because a friend told me how much they enjoyed being a member. Fast forward a couple years later and I am finally able to enjoy both indoor and outdoor events at the center. The mission of the Kennedy Center really speaks to me and the community events as well as amazing performances throughout the year definitely make the membership worth while. My husband and I attended our first opera this year. We have also attended a few National Symphony Orchestra performances and a members only rehearsal. It was really special to watch the orchestra rehearse and see how the players and conductor come together to perform beautiful compositions. The Hall of States and Hall of Countries are really something to behold as well. There is so much history to learn about. The Reach is another building on the campus that is also full of great historical moments and an active work area for artists. The grounds have an amazing view of the Potomac River as well. There is parking on site for $25 and members receive a $5 discount on parking if you book in advance. We have not tried the on site restaurant yet, but plan to soon. Definitely check out an event and grounds of the Kennedy Center, if you are in the area. You will want to come back for sure. Thanks! :-)

Joana Ward: Lunar New Year Lanterns. Beautiful Display and family friendly. During COVID everyone was wearing masks even outside. Recommending you go early to park and although the line was long it moved quickly for how long it was (40 minutes). There was a free station for activities the kids could do. Bring two adults for kids so someone can stay in line while the other one has the kids exploring.

Jessica Isbell: We had an absolutely amazing time! The entire experience was just wonderful. My 6 year old thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Venue was incredible, staff exceptional. Weather was a perk too, perfect day. The outside area for intermission with views of DC is fabulous. We will absolutely be back. Thank you for adhering to masking and vaccination policies as well while bringing the arts back into these hectic times.

preservefootprints: We visit there on last 2 days of the Reach Winter Lanterns Festival. It was a huge area filled with lanterns displays celebrating 2022 Lunar New Year, it was so beautiful and bright. They have benches with heater around the open space. The organizer has worked excellent to manage the guests flow!

David Morar: A true home for the performing arts, the Kennedy Center has numerous stages from the Opera House to a black box theater and everything in between. Created for DC residents and tourists alike, the Center brings or originates amazing shows, events and workshops. It’s both the institutional house for the National Symphony Orchestra and the place that has daily free shows (of all types) at 6pm. It’s truly got something for everyone, and with the recent addition of The Reach its uhm, reach has broadened even further! You can never go wrong with the KC. Highly recommend visiting on a random day even if you’re not going for a show: having just celebrated 50 years, the center is proud of its history and showcases it among other revolving pieces in its vast and airy halls. Check out the terraces (ground level and “terrace” level) and enjoy sweeping views of the city. A true gem in the nation’s capital!

Mark Capriotti: Arrive early, grab a drink, and walk along the roof top. Perfect way to start the evening looking at many views of DC. Masks are required for the theater.

C F: Beautiful performing arts center with amazing friendly staff. Our family loves to attend shows as well as grab some snacks and walk the grounds. Some beautiful views of the river, some monuments and Georgetown. Also 2 gift shops, a cafe, and multiple snack stations. Underground parking also available or you can grab the shuttle which picks up and drops off at the GW metro station.

Grey TheCat: This place is a lot of things, historic, classy, artsy, fun, accessible, it offers a ton of free activities and events and variety. This is a cultural epicenter and one of the East coast best venues. Spacious, easy parking and overall inexpensive events make it accessible to most people even those on a small budget.

Hirshhorn Museum: what do users think?

preservefootprints: It was under renovation but you still can visit and enjoy art show inside without being distracted by. The Marcel Duchamp legacy exhibit “It’s Art If I Say So” was informative and interesting, if you plan your next visit, pay attention on the white toilet that was almost mentioned in some of the artworks. Can you count how many are they? 😉 Don’t miss out the drawing your shadow in “Call it A Little Game Between ’I’ and ‘Me’” exhibit. While you walk between exhibits, don’t forget to feel the Mark Bradford “Pickett’s Charge” that goes around the building. Check on the Laurie Anderson “The Weather” Exhibition! It was a breathtaking! Also don’t forget to stop by the lower level exhibit of Barbara Kruger “Belief + Doubt” around the shop area. And when you leaving to the Sculpture Garden, don’t be surprised of the wide coffee tables from tree root in the lobby! Awesome!

Gary Seybold: The Laurie Anderson exhibit was simply awesome! It’s so good! This woman is a genius and I am so glad I saw her work here! If you have the chance to see it you should. You will not be disappointed.

greg hakala: Phenomenal visit to see the yayoi kusama visit. Arrived at 10:15am for the free allotted tickets and was able to grab 2 for 11:45am. Seems if you go in morning should be able to get tickets for that day, none are online.

Isabel Berdeja: One of my favorite DC museums, it’s free! Saturday and Sunday get pretty packed, so make sure to arrive early if you want to avoid crowds. Also, tickets for special exhibits sometimes ran out, so if you’re looking to see one of those, book the tickets in advance (they’re still free, they just use them to manage the amount of people in the exhibit)

Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum: what do users think?

Kersten Chisti Dryden: We went to see the Burning Man exhibit. Beautiful gallery, with lots of different rooms. We easily spent 3 hours in here, there was so much to take in, on all sensory levels. Lots of interactive art, including a VR experience, and a carved wooden chapel with little pieces of wood that you can write to loved ones who have passed, and add to the exhibit. Very well produced, all together.

Pakeezha: This is one of my favorite museums. It’s easy to get there and pretty small and they change their exhibitions in every few months which makes you want to go and visit more often. It’s always fascinating seeing the new designs. it can get crowded at peak times but they control the amount of people that can enter which is very nice.

Miss Guided: I visited the burning man experience. My niece and I wanted to be the simulator experience. The nasty worker said was very rude and nasty. Other than that the exhibit was amazing. I cannot take people’s action in account for how wonderful the museum is. Definitely a must see!!! It wasn’t too crowded on the Monday we went which was Labor Day. It was difficult to get some good picture of the mushrooms because of the crowds but still enjoyable. The exhibit is very tranquil and nice.

Ashton Menefee: Really cool museum to hit when in DC, awesome rotating exhibits. We saw the Burning Man, Dustin Farnsworth, and Crime Scene Diorama exhibits on a few visits. It’s an easy walk from anywhere in DC, close to the White House, and worth a stop if you want to see something different.

K A: I visited the Renwick Gallery with my family last fall and i was impressed with all the beautiful and extraordinary exhibits.The David’s best temple caught my gaze with its glow and I also love the disrupting Craft. A great museum rich in history and packed with lots of exceptional crafts. It’s a must see if you are visiting DC. I highly recommend to all tourists, locals, craft and art lovers.

H J: The burning man exhibition was on when we attended and it was a really good one. The space within the museum was used really well and the exhibits combined interactive, traditional and contemporary style pieces that appealed to the whole family. Definitely worth a visit once you are done with the White House! Recommended

#photohoag: Work House arts center, what an amazing change from old prison to supporting the arts and giving back to the community. There really does seem to be something for everyone. You really should check out the website and find something to try.

Scott Ewing: Arches Gallery in building 9 has some beautiful pottery

Cyborg82SS: Take kids here for art class. Cool they still have the bldg the original way and setting. You can walk around and just explore.

Judith Ann Arnold: Huge spaces for a variety of gallery favorites! Wonderful positive vibe. Friendly service & enjoyed the gift shop as well

Shelly Durkee: Fascinating place and history! Worth a stop!

Cindy Romero: The coolest experience on a rainy Saturday. My toddler, mom and me had so much fun perusing the various artist galleries and it was great to see so many talented women artists especially. A good mix of diverse art mediums. The icing on the cake though was the amazingly hospitable and warm staff in the cafe in the visitors center. They had a delicious selection of food and simply perfect hot chocolate that hit the spot on a rainy day. They were so accommodating to my rambunctious toddler, even playing with her and making her special drinks. She had such a blast. The cafe is a must and will have you leaving with warm vibes.

National Portrait Gallery: what do users think?

ReCreate Artworks: This is the best art gallery in DC in my opinion. It’s beautiful, unique and calming. There’s an atrium in the center that provides a dreamy place to sit and rest. My favorite thing about this gallery, however, is that there’s conservationists you can watch at work. When you walk into this museum it’s like being in a different world. Each space creates such a unique atmosphere and is breathtaking to say the least.

Klau Pao: The Gallery is amazing, you will probably spend 2 hours there. It has very beautiful portraits, one of my favorites was Gilbert Stuart painting of George Washington and everything related to Abraham Lincoln as well as the amazing portrait of the Supreme Court Justices! Wow what a place to put on my memory box! I loved it!

M J: I really enjoyed the National Portrait Gallery which shares buildings with the American Art Museum (they each have a side on both buildings). The Hall of Presidents was excellent. I really enjoyed seeing the 2022 Potrait Contest and enjoyed voting for my favorite Portrait. There is a 50 year Anniversary exhibit for the Watergate Scandal and we almost visited on the actual anniversary so that was cool. There are a lot of different portraits of Americans on display and they are pretty randomly spread out between the rooms. All in all, expect to spend 1 1/2-2 hours at this part of the museum. I will say, some teens and kids who are not the most intellectually driven may find it boring as there are not interactive exhibits.

Ukvayat Hanak: The National Portrait Gallery gets 4/5 for all the exhibit areas that are closed right now. Many renovations going on! So many varied exhibits though. A great place to host a catered event. Check em out!

Kathy W: Museum is really big and has so much to see. We spent a good amount of time at kogot courtyard which happens to have orchids displays. Beautiful and fun place for people of all ages. Parking was somewhat challenging but really worth the trip.

Joshua Russell: This is one of our favorite museums in DC by far. You get a wide array of art here on three floors. This is located right in Chinatown across the street from Capital One Arena with two entrances. One thing to note if you are being a bag it has to be worn in front of you at all times. We recently came here and I would say my favorite areas were the special exhibition of the dual artists and their stories. They show one piece of art from the artist and tells the story of their connection. They have a Jackson Pollock called Heading West which was really neat to his art before the drip style. Another favorite was the Hung Liu portraits, the way she did them is nothing I’ve seen before and really showed great expression. I also enjoyed the social Justice exhibition as it covered a wide variety of areas and include very moving stories. I highly recommend coming here and spending a couple hours browsing.

Courtney Bradshaw: Such a wonderful part of Arlington! The art on display is contemporary and very interesting to view. Their classes are excellent! I took a drawing class this spring and the instructor, Melanie, was fantastic. I am not a natural at drawing but Melanie made it manageable while still challenging us. She was able to adapt really well to moving virtually the last couple of classes due to the pandemic, and I don’t think it diminished the experience.

Jon: Great space providing locals the opportunity to make and enjoy art.

Chris Kagy: Small, but great quality place! There are always interesting exhibits on display here. This is a small space, so you get very close to the pieces. The Tiffany room also displays beautiful L C Tiffany stained glass windows from Arlington house. Professional artists have studios here, too. Finally, the kids art themes day camps offered here generally get the kids involved with and building on the current exhibits with guidance by great staff

Betty Belanus: Free, close to metro and a high quality of exhibitions. Also offers classes and workshops.

Jim Ruckman: Came here to attend a wedding. The venue was beautiful, the service was attentive, and the ability to break from the crowd to peruse the art selection was great for for giving me some great break time.

Torpedo Factory Art Center: what do users think?

Claudia Luna: We happen to walk by this place and I’m glad we went inside. Unexpectedly large ex-factory with three floors of artist studios. There was a wide range of art styles with affordable small pieces available. We ended up leaving with two prints and got to meet the artists directly. Super cool and will come back again. They also offer art classes and workshops!

Lauren Chartuk: The Torpedo Factory Art Center is not only an incredible asset to the city of Alexandria and the art community. It is a beautiful wedding venue. The space is a chameleon, enabling artists, and brides to really make the space their own. I highly recommend visiting and their amazing events coordinator, Deri!

preservefootprints: A historical torpedo factory which the buildings is repurposed as nation’s largest community of working artists. 3 stories building filled with the exhibits of torpedo factory historic, the art school, an archaeology museum and different types of arts studios and if you’re lucky you’ll meet the artists yourself. Each level has their own restrooms area, which all of them are very clean! You’ll find hand sanitizer almost in every entrance/ exit area. Parking garage are all in walking perimeter around, starting $2.50/ hour or $10 max on weekdays and $5 max on weekends.

Tiffany “NewlyNatural” J: It was a lot of fun seeing all the different types of art and artists. There were 3 floors of awesome art and super creative people. They offer classes and so many other cool things. Not allowed to take picture while in the studio of course but very nice art work. I would have liked to know more about the building as well.

Raymond Ellis: I enjoyed the Torpedo Factory Art Center. The artwork on display from the various artists was very interesting. Some of the artists were actually present in their studios. I also liked the exhibits on the history of the building. Thousands of torpedoes were produced there during WWII. There is also an archeological museum on-site. It was closed when I was there but they had a lot of information on view in the hallway

Erik V: An outstanding spot you meet, commission local artists. The old building is also fascinating, with [disarmed] torpedoes that are fun for anybody who likes naval adventures. Pet friendly.

Jade West: Very cool place. Lots if great artwork & fun artsy people.
