Smithsonian Associates: what do users think?


Bec215 H.: One of my earliest memories is a behind the scenes tour of the Smithsonian natural history museum at age 5. Still love the museums, but the Resident Associates programs are an amazing way to add a new dimension to life-long learning, beyond reading books or watching videos. The pandemic has made far more events accessible to us, as all content has moved to Zoom, and I hope the SA leadership will recognize the value of continuing to offer virtual programming beyond the pandemic time. As for content, we've enjoyed everything from a lecture on Mongolian history we attended a few months prior to our trip to Mongolia to beginning drawing, to a lecture on the history of American food culture since 1850. My mom is 75 and disabled, but still curious about the world and wanting to learn, and she loves loves loves these events - it gives her new things to learn and piques her curiosity about the world, and also gives her things to talk about with family and friends that enrich her social life. I've noted the lack of cultural diversity especially in the history/literature-related programming, and would like to see more Asian history and arts content. For me the issue of content diversity is separate from the value the content that they produce and the quality of it, which so far has been nothing but outstanding. Engagement is what motivates change, so I hope as membership grows and diversity expands, so will their programming.

Jennifer Gelman: My husband and I have been members of the Smithsonian Associates for quite a few years now. We almost always enjoy the programs and trips, although a few have been duds. Tonight's program was celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Sound of Music. You can attend programs without being a member, but members get discounts on all of the programs. Many of the lectures are at the Ripley Center (where the African and Asian art museums are). The lecturers are experts in their fields.

Kenya Allmond: I've attended many of the Smithsonian Associates programs over the years. They are always informative and engaging. One of my favorite programs featured an astronomer who. along with his team, examines the sky in famous paintings and could tell you the day in history that the paintings were composed. It was an excellent melding of arts and sciences.

Julia Thomas: Registered for online classes but they've been sending the zoom links to someone else's email address. Missed the classes. Customer service of no help. Wasted $200.

Eric Epstein: We have been museum members for almost 20 years. We love the culture, the talks and experience.

Georgette Dorn: Tried to through by phone or email to ask for information about Studio Art classes. No luck. Website and phone tree most unhelpful.

Bikramjeet Singh: If it will be live video then it will be awesome

Jim Blount: Awesome history of the great USA. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at GW: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: The current exhibit has some very interesting photos, paintings, and sculpture. It would have helped so much to have some information about the pieces.

Austin Graff: The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design is in the old Corcoran Museum flanking the Executive Building by the White House. It's centrally located in Washington, D.C and a beautiful space. It's in an old building set up like a museum making the school's art shows out of this world. There are spiraling staircases, courtyards and room after room of beautifully designed art. If you get invited to an event here, say yes!

Gigi G.: Attended a graduate open house and learn a lot about the program and met some staff of other programs and they were fabulous to hear from.

Yesica Suarez: Architecturally, the buildong is awe inspiring. I think it really captures your eyes. The exhibitions for the Lone Prairie, Breaking Cultural Boundaries, Cartoons and the Color exhibitions were interesting. They definitely were trying to tell a meaningful story. I think the cartoon exhibit was successfully set up, but the others needed more content and guidance to trully unfold. There's ton of space to work with in the building so it needed to be used effectively so it wouldn't feel empty

Luis B: Corcoran School is mainly focused on promoting the arts. Friends of mine who have attended the college have had both good and bad things to say based on their experiences. One of the pros of the school is the events and gallery showings that often take place within it's walls. If you're a DC native, or city walker, you may want to check up on Corcoran and see what's going on from time to time.

Asad Jan: The Corcoran Gallery of Art was an art museum in Washington, D.C. Prior to its closing, it was one of the oldest privately supported cultural institutions in the United States capital. Starting in 1890, a museum school, later known as the Corcoran College of Art + Design, co-existed with the gallery. The museum's main focus was American art. In 2014, after decades of financial problems, the Corcoran entered into an agreement with the National Gallery of Art (NGA) and the George Washington University whereby almost all of the gallery's 17,000 work collection was placed under the care of the NGA, while the school and historic 17th street gallery building continued operations as a part of the George Washington University's new Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.

Yaser AlSaghrji: One of the architectural gems of the Nation Capital

Es K: Saw a phenomenal end of year exhibit some years ago

Nik Novakkain: So much talent and this is one of the best schools/museum

Arnold Thomas Bigger: Course selection is very good; faculty and staff are very good; and general vibe is good.

National Gallery of Art – Sculpture Garden: what do users think?


Sarah Hall: A lovely park with beautiful outdoor art to enjoy for free. You can even cool your toes in the fountain. (But they ask you not to actually wade in it.) Plenty of shade and grass, too.

Jenny Terry: Gorgeous small sculpture garden! I really enjoyed the thought provoking sculptures on display. I could have sat around the fountain and watched the ducks all day. What a beautiful little gem that I’m so glad we discovered.

Walt Nicholson: This is one of the best gems of the national mall. The garden is full interesting and thought-provoking artworks, and in the summer there’s an amazing fountain that turns into an ice rink in the winter. The café is one of the best places to get real food on the mall. The prices are a little steep for than most would like, but the food is good and it’s not on the high school bus tour itinerary. It’s a great spot to other plan your time in DC or to catch your breath after walking through the monuments all day.

DD Henderson: Was able to go ice skating. The price for skate rental and skating was around $14./ Child. Their is a cafe there to grab a cup of hot cocoa. Many of sculptures to take pictures of. Metered parking is available until 4 pm. After a few hours of ice skating head over next door to the American History Museum. Across the street you can take a ride on the carousel or have a picnic in the park.

Seth Grossman: Who doesn't love awesome sculptures outdoors? Only people that hate art and all things wonderful, that's who! In all seriousness, it's just beautiful to be able to walk around and experience art in nature. And if you can time you're visit just right, you can enjoy them in the perfect dusk lighting.

Richard Gross: Such a great place to find some shade and have a snack when out at the museum the national mall. They have a little cafe, nice bathrooms, and a water bottle refill. Plus lots of cool sculptures around the garden. The fountain is nice to watch. Great place and no entry fee.

David Hong: Very cute and small sculpture garden. There I'd a cafe inside and ice skating or other events during different times of the year. Best part of being here is just sitting on a bench doing whatever you want and looking around occasionally.

Kevin Shim: Nice little place to hangout.It has cool sculptures, an ice rink, and a cafe. Plenty of places to sit outside and just relax.

Hilda Kroll: Just walk in to see and admire the sculptures, sit or walk around the fountain in the summer that becomes a skating rink in the winter, and have something to eat or drink at the Pavilion Cafe. Don't forget to walk past Lichtenstein's House to see the optical illusion. Stop to see Roxy Paine's beautiful stainless steel tree sculpture as it reflects light and weather at different times of the day. And it's all free.

R Lin: Looking for a pleasant, outdoor place to hang out with food close by and a good view? Well, there are about a million spots like that in DC and especially the National Mall area, but hey, come try the Nat’l Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden anyways! It’s a pretty expansive garden, and the art to be found is so much fun. One game I really like to play here is to try and pose like the sculptures. Seriously, try it- you’ll definitely get weird looks from the passerby’s but the fun and laughs triumph! There’s a cafe in the garden that does have indoor and outdoor seating. It’s close by so many other museums and is actually across the street from the Nat’l Gallery of Art museum, which may be a little misleading. Check it out!

District Clay Center: what do users think?


D Waldo: Visited NGO, Plants & Blooms Reimagined, a special floral design work space.

Erica Young: I love District clay and all that I have been able to accomplish since taking classes there! Great people, teachers, and equipment. The price is good, considering the (few) pottery studios in the area charge slightly more. Also, as a student in a class, you can visit any other classes during the week (without paying more) and they have open studio time on Sundays. The only downside is that as the place gets bigger and adds more students, they don't appear to do much about the spacing and needs of the greater amount of students, until it is late in the game. For example, shelf space and firing times seems to stay the same unless enough complaints come in. I wish they would anticipate these needs of a growing location. On the whole though, it's a great place and I love attending my classes!

Maria Otero: This is a great place, helpful, responsive teachers, good equipment, unique warm atmosphere where you can interact with other students or just be - everyone is helpful, that's just is the culture of the place. Beautiful pottery and great learning. I swore to myself I wasn't going to tell anyone about District Clay to keep it as lovely as it is, but here I am, posting this five star review!

Beatriz T. CentenoPiñeiro: I recommend this place only to people who are flexible and not too concerned about what comes out. I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, it's a good deal and the instructors are nice (for the most part). On the other hand, you need to speak up if you need guidance, most of the time the kiln is loaded by work-study people that are sometimes a bit careless and unfocused, so there are accidents, and then there are also problems with glazes. After the 10 weeks of class, students must clear their shelf but the temporary shelf is always crowded, increasing chances of accidents, and it takes a few more weeks for your final pieces to be fired. So even if you are finished, kiln traffic is always high and you have to go back every other week to see if your pieces are done.

Jan Vandevanter: You could not choose a better place to learn. The instructors are terrific, the space is warm and welcoming and the generosity of spirit is palpable. Whether you are a beginner or pro all are welcomed equally.

Adam Barrett: They accommodated a small group of us last minute. We had a great time. They glazed and fired our pots. I’ll be back again for sure.

Benjamin Gutman: Great place to learn, see and do pottery. Classes. Gallery. Studio space. All excellent. And friendly and knowledgeable community.

Tonya Howe: Amazing community, awesome space, great location, accessible class prices--what more can you want?

Luke Lukens: Great space. Owned and run by the best people in the world.

Jason Navarre: My friends introduced me to this place and it's great!!

Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture: what do users think?


Muneer Khan: It's a one of the finest place for art and portrait lovers. You can imagine the world of portraits along with their history in audio. You can sit over the third floor and take some free time. Very good decorations and explanations. Amazing place. Earlier it was at my least priority but once I entered inside the building I lost among the finest paintings and portrait. I spent more than 3 hours in this huge museum.

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.

Roderick Wells: Great place to visit, especially if your short on time and can't run into any lines. Great seating area to eat and chill highly recommend it.

Amanda Dennis: The Portrait gallery is great fun. The history is amazing.Don't forget to visit the third floor, with the stained glass doors gorgeous tile floor! That was where Lincoln was inaugurated!

A To Z Sales 1: We had purchased a couple of American flags🇺🇸🇺🇸from a vendor, and upon arrival, not even getting in the door good. We were asked to get rid of our flags, that they were not allowed inside. We even asked if they would hold on to them while we toured and they refused.....very un- American!!! The artwork was amazing, but the experience really killed the vibe.

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.

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.

Kathryn Corselius: The National Gallery of Art is a great stop for any history or art lover. Boasting many different paintings from the biggest artists, the gallery is expansive and well-curated. I spent a couple of hours here and could easily have spent more time here. I would recommend planning ahead to locate the galleries that are a must-see for you, as after a couple of hours, it's easy to get fatigued by how many pieces there are. For history lovers, check out the presidential portraits by Gilbert Stuart and the famous painting of Marie Antoinette. I also recommend touring the galleries on the lower floor, where there are beautiful Degas and Rodin sculptures and early Colonial furniture.

Nay Wareenipha: Absolutely must visit if you love art and it's FREE! I saw a Davinci painting for the first time here with nobody around. It's very peaceful. There's also a FREE baggage deposit area so don't worry about your coats and bags. You can get a free map that will allow you to go through each section based on the era of the paintings. You can easily spend a whole day here. So many things to see. Additionally there's also an amazing free audio guide under some paintings that you can listen to which is fantastic. There's also another floor under dedicated to sculptures which is also very interesting. There's free WiFi in the premises. Also souvenir shops and food place. Plus, it's also next to the Smithsonian museum so you can see both in one day.

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!

Andrew Hovenden: So much to see. Take your time but don't dawdle or you will tire before you see it all! I posted my favorites and lesser known pieces I liked; and ones I want to know more about. Be sure to look at the frames and the floors. Some of the frames are amazing and the floors are beautiful wood. Decent place for kids under 12 but the might need help understanding why these are great works. Good Cafe with a nice Kale and chicken salad.

F SDK: I've driven 4 hours to be in Washington DC from PA, and this is one of the place we've stopped over. We didnt need entry fee, and the amazing arts took a couple of hours from our day trip. The place is huge, hard to walk all the way and see everything. We've tried to cover as much we could within a short time.

Noah Lepek: The National Gallery of Art should be on everyone's itinerary when planning a visit to Washington D.C. This internationally recognized museum holds works of art from every part of the world, allowing people to develop a better understanding of the world. When visiting the capital of the United States, this place certainly comes highly recommended.

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.

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!

T Shung: My favorite museum in DC! I love that the exhibits change out and you can revisit it months later and it can be whole new art. It was pretty crowded though for a Saturday, so plan accordingly. I used to work nearby and used to go there on my lunch sometimes and enjoyed eating my lunch in the court yard. It's big but not overwhelming. It's such a diverse group of eclectic thought provoking art from varioua artists.

Seth Grossman: An incredible museum which is currently undergoing some renovations, but is still worth the visit! Like the Guggenheim in NYC, the shape of the building itself plays into the experience; each exhibit following the curve of the building and leading you through its treasures. A perfect example was Mark Bradford's "Pickett's Charge" which was created specially for this space. Besides the building itself being part of the museum experience, each floor is like its own separate tiny museum, focusing on one artist's work or one subject. It is a well used space for a somewhat smaller sized museum. And the experience can be enhanced and enlightened depending upon the specific exhibit. However, the Duchamp exhibit was informative and just okay. If you get a chance, go to see Laurie Anderson's "The Weather" - I was absolutely blown away by this entire exhibit. Most of my pictures are from one room of this exhibit, but all of the rooms were an experience. I was not expecting anything and was touched and impressed by every section of the exhibit. Check it out! Also check out the cool tables in the lobby built using the cross section of a tree's root system; beautiful!

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.

James Barton: "As busy as it can be," which is a rating I've never seen before. This is a great art museum for people who don't like art (or the enlightened). This is all "modern" art, and mostly temporary exhibits (except for the sculpture garden, which seems to not change much).

Rebekah Horne: I took my kids to see the museum on Wednesday and they liked it so well we went through the exhibits twice. Then they asked to return again the next day. The Kusama and Anderson exhibits are wonderful! I couldn't recommend them enough. Both exhibits my teens loved, which is uncommon for them to be so excited about art.

Adriana Rakshana: The Yayoi Kusama exhibit is nice but honestly not necessarily worth it for the ticket wait? Pretty instagrammable though, if that means anything to you. If you live in DC, maybe wait for a couple months before visiting perhaps? If you're planning to visit anytime soon, maybe try and line up at 8/8:30ish. We visited at the end of March and the tickets sold out by 10:30, so plan accordingly! Outside of that, the Marcel Duchamp and the Laurie Anderson exhibits are pretty decent!

Abi Maghamfar: The museum's exterior is currently under renovation but it is open to visitors and the exhibits, especially Laurie Anderson's "The Weather" & Mark Bradford's "Pickett's Charge" are awesome!

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)

The Art League: what do users think?


Geoff Livingston: The Art League does many great things for the artist community within Alexandria city and its suburbs. I enjoy their gallery and their contest. At the same time, my family has registered for four classes and camps in total, and they have been hit or miss. Plus the league is really bad at communications (like they don't communicate when class will start or if it will be cancelled because of snow), prompting many a nervous phone call. It's a mixed bag.

Maggie Williams: Critical: Communication, Professionalism, QualityClasses are a hit or a miss. A bit unprofessional as there was poor communication . Go to the workhouse art center in Lorton if you are looking for art classes.

C Kuester: Love the Art League. I've taken several classes here and they've been terrific.

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!

Kirk Sigmon: In my opinion, completely unprofessional, and the sole reason why a needy girls' charity won't be able to throw a fundraiser. I won a "corporate retreat" here through a local charity auction, and decided to use it to support a needy girls' charity in Nepal. I let my friends go for free, conditioned on them donating money to the charity. Apparently, that wasn't welcome. I quickly received a threatening call from the Art League, saying that they "never promised" an event, and even threatening to have their law firm prevent me from helping donate to charity! This isn't even to mention the other issues I had trying to set my up in the first place - endless calls to try to set it up, vagueness about what the class actually would offer, attempts to not provide the class in the first place (they kept saying their schedule was too full to offer it at any reasonable time, then offered something ridiculous like 1 PM on a weekday), etc. Needless to say, I'll try to find the charity another venue, but I feel completely scammed.

Sarah Concepcion: It's neat that you can go into an artist workshop and see what they work on. Sometimes they have public exhibitions too that can be interactive even. If you want to buy art though, the price is not cheap.

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

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

Norraine Miller, MS: Really enjoy the visit

Nicky: Great Institute

Arts Club of Washington: what do users think?


Glenn C Reimer: A majestic house with a legacy related not just to James Madison's residence there, but his early months as President as well as it served as the US Executive Mansion while the White House was being repaired after War of 1812. Great facilities for socially distanced meetings, a small theatre, an intone meal with a world-class chef, a quiet courtyard, and endless stories of fascinating individuals!

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

Smithsonian American Art Museum: what do users think?


Austin Graff: American Art Museum can stand on its own even if it wasn't in the same Greek Revival building as the National Portrait Gallery. Located in Chinatown, it's in the old patent building and free for all to enter. Here are the highlights: 1) Art: Gallery after gallery showcase paintings and sculptures through the ages. More popular pieces come wit benches nearby for visitors to soak it in. 2) Courtyard: The Kogod Courtyard is stunning and connects the two museums. There's wifi, tables and gardens. 3) Store: It's large and has a lot of gems, perfect for gifts. 4) Fun: If you want to explore the museum through a scavenger hunt, ask the front desk for a map!

M J: It was so disappointing because half of the Museum was closed for renovations otherwise I would have rated it 5 stars. To miss the Impressionist and Gilded Age wings due to the renovations made me sad. However, there are 2 Georgia O'Keefe paintings on display (one on the 3rd floor and one on the lower level), a Grandma Moses, a Warhol, some Pollocks, a Rockwell (3rd floor) and an Andrew Wyeth. I did really enjoy the art which was on display, and hopefully on my next DC vacation I'll be able to see the rest of the Museum including the Hockney next time!

Jose Ortega: This shares the same space as the National Portrait Gallery. And together they make for one great place to visit and spend time with. It's free which is great. I would go on a Sunday and go super early and park on the street since parking is free in DC on Sundays. It can get pretty busy so just keep that in mind. But it is cant miss kind of place.

Jocelyn G: Lots of really neat art spanning three stories. It was extremely crowded, though, and the security guards kept following me and the person I was with around. Every room had 1 security guard to prevent people from stealing or touching artwork and every single room they were always about three feet behind us, following us till the next guard took over. No idea why, we were standing a few feet from each piece and we're well mannered (especially when compared to some of the other people we saw).

Brian Hagan: October 2021 • Beautiful museum! Free like all Smithsonian's and packed full of wonderful art. Could easily spend half a day here to see everything, though we only had about 90 minutes to spare. Beautiful atrium/courtyard area in the center...was a great place to take a few minutes rest during a busy day of sightseeing. I would allow at least 2-3 hours to see everything here, though again, you could easily spend more!

Theresann Pyrett: An amazing visit! You can swing in and just check out the Presidents or you can make it a longer visit and view all of the other exhibits available. I included photos of our favorites, but a definite must see in DC!

Hind KH: It is GREAT. Be prepared to spend at least 4 hours so you can take a look at all sections. It is really big and has a lot of galleries.

John St. Pierre: You can get lost in this place and spend an entire day in the midst of beautiful artwork, including paintings and sculptures. The museum is also attached to the National Portrait Gallery, and you can walk seamlessly between them. Nearly all of the art can be walked right up to and viewed up close and there is plenty of seating everywhere for sitting and appreciating the artwork around you. Probably not the best for small children, but highly recommended for anyone who appreciates fine art.

Matthew Hsu: Good place to visit to see a broad collection of art from colonial to contemporary times.If you are driving to this museum, I would recommend parking at the City Center parking garage as this garage opens 24 hours

Kathie Olson: Hadn’t been to this Smithsonian museum yet, and had just an hour to walk through. It was lovely’. I especially loved the folk art and Americana galleries.

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


Lin Romano: Loved loved loved it! Wonderful exhibit on Burning Man when we visited, along with other great exhibits that took a bit less space. The gallery is such an intimate yet roomy space that any exhibit could be staged well there. As part of the Smithsonian it's also free, which is nice, too.

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.

Lauren Brown: I visited the Burning Man exhibit and was blown away by the quality and scale of the work. The art became more powerful when given context and story with the effective displays. It was well placed in the space. It's a smaller museum, but well worth the visit. The gift shop was well curated.

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.

Sam Eldredge: This museum is perfect for those with a bit of extra time to spend in their day and nothing to fill it with. It's not overwhelmingly large making it easy to see all of the various pieces and exhibits. Also the floor format is circular allowing for easy circulation and no dead ends. There are staff around each corner for questions and beat of all, it's free!

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

Allison Lau: One of my favorite places to visit in DC because of it's in-depth content and "larger than life" installations. The gallery is small enough where you can digest everything thoroughly without getting overwhelmed. Detailed descriptions accompany the art pieces. Each room encompasses a different installation. The Burning Man exhibit has been eye-opening, and includes a comprehensive history and future expectations of this whole movement.

National Portrait Gallery: what do users think?


E Blount: The National Portrait Gallery was a really nice experience. There are themed galleries as well as the presidential gallery. If I remember correctly there are 3 floors to explore. There are elevators for those that can't or don't want to walk. It is completely FREE and no ticket required. If you bring a bag it must be worn on the front of your body so that you don't accidentally damage an exhibit.

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.

Ray: I didn't know there is this museum until we walked by on the way to Chinatown for lunch. We visited it after lunch. It's great to see some of the arts that I have seen in books or videos in person. Kids enjoyed it as well as we got into some good discussions on some sculpture pieces.

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.

Salsabil Yeasmin: Such a beautiful museum. They have free entrance but I would suggest to make a donation even if it's just a dollar or some change. They have worked hard to keep the museum safe, clean and organized. The artwork represents what America is about and our diversity. I simply loved the experience in there.

beyondTabu: This museum is really nice… but this review isn’t about the museum directly. It’s about the staff/security. We’ve been to several other museums and they all seem to have the same attitude. They yell/scream at you from across the room, to not do something or that you’re breaking their rules (that aren’t clearly posted anywhere). It’s very disrespectful and unprofessional. This mentality seems to be widespread in all the museums recently. It’s like they’ve had no customer service training at all. They have a little power and wield it unabated. It upsets our day really makes us not want to visit the attractions.

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.

National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden Ice Rink: what do users think?


Yumi Nelson: Definitely worth a visit! The rink is pretty small, but we didn't have to wait to start skating on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Also, they seem to run out of lockers so keep that in mind. Probably the most scenic option for skating around DC, surrounded by the sculpture garden and Smithsonian's etc. Another plus - the beer etc sold at the sculpture garden pavilion is well below average cost of a drink in DC!

CB: Cute rink but bad customer service and inaccurate hours of operation. The rink “sells out” of skates very quickly and stops renting out skates (when stocked) at around 7PM. Unless you plan to go as soon they open or you decide to wait an unknown period of time, you likely will not be able to enter. I have tried to go on two different occasions within a few days, hours before closing, and was refused entry/rental both times. We ran into several other people while leaving who experienced the same. In previous years, this rink was great, but they are not operating their best since the pandemic began. Would advise going to Georgetown rink instead

M Munoz: The only time I was able to skate at this rink was when I went around opening time, at 11AM. That’s the only reason I am rating one star. Any other time at night, I was turned away on multiple occasions. They always say that they’re sold out even if I’m there hours before their listed times. Misleading and unprofessional, especially since skaters were leaving as I had requested for a rental AND the person directly in front of me was able to get skates. There’s no structure or consistency in this rink’s operation. Save yourself the trip and go elsewhere!

Kate Bellows: I went here a few weeks ago, and we had so much fun! Very busy, so if you can go in the middle of the day during the weekday, that’s for the best. And pack light, because it’s hard to avoid not getting a locker unless you just want to leave your stuff out.

Freer Gallery of Art: what do users think?


Jozlantice Tucker: This museum stop for me was very spur of the moment. We thought we weren't going to be in there long, but everything was so nice we spent alot of time there. As we walked it showed us different geographic areas of Asian art. My favorite was the pottery and the Indian sculptures. This museum also connects to the African art museum I think. Very nice place to pace yourself and just look at the art. This place gave a nice sense of peace.

Hilda Kroll: Unfortunately, the Freer and Sackler are temporarily closing again. Luckily, I got to see the fabulous Fashioning an Empire exhibit today. I hope it will still be here when the museum reopens in the future.

LeeAnna Springer: Well layed out and easy to see every piece on display. All prices have a label with clear explanations of the history of the object. Quiet and clean with a nice gift shop on the basement level.

travelswithadiplomat: Superb small museum and gallery. Wandered in on Thursday (only open Thursday to Sunday) and barely saw another person which enabled a very peaceful, languid inspection of everything. The Peacock Room makes this a must-visit place on the Mall. Ambience quiet, cool temperatures, well labeled artifacts giving context. Highly recommended.

Gary Seybold: This was a great museum to visit on a cold Saturday! Lovely Asian art to see and wonder how they were created so beautifully such a long time ago. How they managed to stay in such great condition is another mystery!! Visit and you will not be disappointed!

Heleen Raes: This museum has a beautiful collection of Asian art, including the gorgeous peacock room. It’s very nice to visit.

Mario Moquete: I wish I could have spent more time in this museum. Amazing exhibits

Ken Woods: Stumbled upon this gem and enjoyed every minute of my visit. More information on how the pieces were acquired should accompany the art itself. Unless we don't want to talk about that.

Sherazade Ariavand: One of my favorite museums. Can't wait for the renovation to be done.

Satyaki Mitra: Excellent collecion of predominantly historical art from the far east, west Asia and the Indian subcontnent.

Dupont Underground: what do users think?


Jessica: Dope venue!! Loved the art! I found it on event bright and went for a comedy show. It was cheap so the show was so much better than expected. All of the comedians were hilarious! I’ll definitely bring my friends there next time I’m visiting DC.

Regina Mock: Couldn’t rate this place higher but it is a beautiful celebration and artist space for amplifying voices and ideas! Have gone many times and to a few events during Pride Month for the drag shows! Even though it was a smaller crowd, the space made it feel that the energy had tripled!

Aránzazu Ascunce: If you need to get away from the heat, take a stroll in the cool underground gallery right beneath Dupont Circle. You will be exposed to local artists in images displayed through projectors on a white wall that circles along a track of what used to be a hope of a station. We were also very appreciative of the warm welcome by Chris the Director of Operations. We hope to visit soon again!

Charles Hunter: All the times I past Dupont Underground growing up I never got the chance to see what's down there until now. The echo makes the place loud and lack of light takes away from what it could be. I hope it remains open and gets to grow more.

bherm100: This is a tourist trap pretending to be an art venture. It's just some carts selling the usual tourist items. Keychains, houseplants, hats. Basic low quality gift store stuff. They will also pressure you to buy. Not nice salespeople running things. Avoid this place.

LOVStudios: The place is OKAY. They let every wannabe artist and exhibitor into the space, so it is a hit or miss experience. The place is cool-looking enough, they should have invested in a more polished artist and gotten real murals. I would be disappointed at the lack of bathrooms but I doubt it would be properly maintained anyway and that's worse. No cell signal so be prepared unless your provider is a superhero. If you have Xfinity Hotspot, you are good to go.

Mike: A pretty fun venue. The acostics are pretty rough, so a loud DJ drowns out any hope of a conversation. We went for the ClickDC event and had a great time. The venue set the scene very well.

Mischa: Very nice place to look at street art underground, and I hope they will add even more!

Toby Manjarress: Amazing hidden space where freedom and creativity meet. Bought a smooth, sweet cigar ($10) from cigarsbyreuben.com and stationary/stickers from @pencilroots on Instagram. I think the pictures speak for themselves.

Lauren Hanyok: It's an amazing art and performance venue that feels like another world! I performed in the Cabaret Rising: One Nation Underground Immersive in February 2018 and loved it!

Art Museum of the Americas: what do users think?


eriko p: What an oasis! This is a very small museum. It feels more like a gallery space. There is $5 donation if you want, but it is free. The building is charming and I am guessing it was once a beautiful home. We truly loved Geandy Pavon's work. She is truly a talented artist. I especially enjoyed the tiled enclosed patio with the wall of windows looking out towards the garden. If you want a experience a small museum and don't have a lot of time, the Art Museum of the Americas is a perfect escape from the city and for one to enjoy art.

Hilda Kroll: If you've never visited this wonderful little museum, now is the perfect time to go. It's open every day except Monday. A short walk from the DAR Museum, Renwick and White House. Lots of places to eat near the Foggy Bottom Metro.

Kausthob Das: Nice place to spend some free time if you are around the national mall area. 3 blocks away from the monument and has ample of street parking

ReCreate Artworks: The most beautiful place I’ve ever been. I wish I could have stayed longer. You could EASILY spend an entire day here—wear comfy shoes and make sure you go downstairs!

Jill Greenstein: Beautiful small gallery. Historic building. Temporary exhibition of work by contemporary Mexican women well curated from the museum's permanent collection. Lots of wall text to introduce the somewhat unknown (in the US) feminist artists. Well curated.

Austin Graff: I love a good museum, but this one is one that's safe to miss in DC: 1) It's VERY small. There are only two floors to it and the art isn't the best in DC. 2) They take suggested donations, so it does cost unless you want to feel guilty as the museum workers stare you down if you don't pay. Pluses: 1) One of the rooms is beautiful with its blue walls and cool architecture. 2) The back of the museum is great with a beautiful fountain. It would be a great place to rent for an event!

Lauren Brown: Small, free museum. The art was well curated. The top floor is from the collection. The second floor is for special exhibits. The front desk person seemed like he wanted to go home. I had a hard time seeing it because of all of the tour buses parked in the area. Bathrooms on the top floor. No gift shop.

Yinzú Nairouz: Love this small museum. It is free and the exhibitions change. They have a good outdoor space at the back

Sam Odle: Beautiful & often overlooked art museum! It’s not very big and parking nearby can be difficult so metro + walk or bike if you aren’t visiting at an off hour. Pro tip: download UniGuide from the App Store to have a self guided experience and not have to play around with getting that set up when you’re there.

Mary McPartland: Such a beautiful, unique, authentic Spanish-lovers artistically wonderful center. Peaceful and quiet interiors right near all the National Mall memorials. Great photo and art exhibit from Spanish Civil War and exhibits depicting all the strife of 1960s-70s Central and South America. Write ups next to the art are super informative. The physical space is gorgeous - open, airy, very beautiful courtyard and architecture. Very friendly reception and well kept grounds. Stop by for a history art lesson!
