Sands of Time Gallery: what do users think?


George Quinn: As a glass scientist, I always enjoy visiting Sands of Time. There are so many fascinating historical art objects! I have acquired several glass pieces from the shop over the years and have never been disappointed. Sue is quite knowledgeable and enjoys talking with me about some of the scientific aspects of the glass pieces. Everything is authentic. She in turn educates me about the trade. Together we even solved a mystery about the contents of one of her sealed ancient glass flasks.

Ian Craig Hilton: If you are interested in collecting antiquities one of the premier Dealers is Sands of Time they stock a wide range of antiquities for all types of collectors whether you are a novice or an old hand great website very user friendly. Highly Recommended 10 out of 10 😃😃😃💘💘💘🤪🤪🤪💜💜💜❤❤❤😁😁

Calloway Fine Art & Consulting: what do users think?


Sean Smith: Susan has framed about 20 pieces for me over the past many years. Though I have moved from the DC area, I continue to rely upon Susan and her team as my fine art framers. I'm sure Atlanta has many fine framers, but why rely upon someone else when Susan's team is the best? I remember once when I asked for framing to match what Susan had done 8? years prior, she stated she would have to call someone out of retirement to match the framing. Such is her dedication to quality. Her team never disappoints!
Response: Thanks, Sean! Our pleasure.

Charles Quatt: I give Calloway 5 stars plus. In my experience this is by far the best place for framing and art restoration in the area. I had 11 very old Japanese prints from the late 1700's. I thought they just needed rematting, when I had my living room repainted and saw that the matting was too dark. First, when we identified the right matting, it was no longer available in the area, so that had to search nationally, and did find the last available. But more importantly, they advised me that the art itself ideally needed to be cleaned and treated for damage. I agreed to do that. The results were beyond belief. I picked the art up yesterday and it was so brilliant and fresh that I could not believe it was my art. As the artist Utamaro is considered by many the leader in Japanese woodblock printing, the results not only added significant value to my collection but brought out details and colors I had never seen - even when I had acquired it many years ago. I appreciated their advice on every step that I took - and that was without pushing me to do anything. And that leads to the outstanding treatment I have received from the beginning of the process when I first showed them the art and we discussed the next steps. They are not only highly professional but also the nicest people and have extraordinary expertise, judgement and coordination. The art wound up being treated by many hands and yet they managed it smoothly and competently. It was in good hands. They did caution me that it would take a bit of time given the difficulties of COVID, but they delivered results that were truly beyond my expectations. This is the place to go for people who have art they value and want it handled perfectly and respectfully. In addition they have excellent taste and a very strong customer focus. I recommend them very highly. They exceed expectations. As a last note, I had other art framed by them many years ago and it remains fresh and perfectly preserved. What more can one ask?
Response: Charlie thank you so much for your kind review! We love having customers who trust our expertise and appreciate the quality of our work. Framing the Japanese Wood Block prints was a rewarding process for the whole team to see something with so much history be revitalized and preserved for generations to come.

David Dunleavy: Susan and her team do a great job. We recently purchased 2 pieces of Art from the Gallery. We highly recommend Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery. They are very knowledgable and patient with your questions. They help make art approachable.
Response: Thank you so much for the review, it was a pleasure meeting both of you! Come back and see us soon!

Larry calvert: Susan and her team are simply excellent. She has a terrific eye for art and placement. We have worked with her many times over the years and treasure every piece we have purchased from her.
Response: Thank you so much, Larry! We feel fortunate to have customers like you.

Lisa Adams: Susan Calloway Fine Arts is my preferred place for artwork and for framing. Susan's eye for artwork and her attention to detail is superb. Its a wonderful place to visit - to look, to see new artists, to talk to the artists and the always gracious gallery owner. Go!

Katie Conover: No one beats Susan Calloway’s exquisite taste. From antique botanical prints to abstract painting and sculpture - she has something beautiful for every taste and style. I have relied on her great eye since the mid-90’s - for both artwork and framing - and I couldn’t recommend her more!

Don Lewis: This is one of the true gems of Georgetown and Washington DC generally. A great gallery with an ever-changing selection of prints, older paintings, and contemporary paintings. All very tasteful. Always an interesting collection on display and housed in a historic building in a nice part of upper Georgetown. Plus great framing services. The owner is charming and helpful.

Sally Babylon: Always a delight to visit the gallery. An amazing array of art works.I first viewed Carl Bretski's plein air paintings at Susan Calloway Fine Arts;this month his work is featured on the cover of Plein Air magazine.

Tom Preston: Great gallery! Wonderful selection of represented artists, terrific custom framing services, and helpful, knowledgeable staff. Very pleased with the latest framing job they did for me on a vintage painting I brought them. Thank you!
Response: Thanks, Tom. Everything you bring us to frame is always interesting and unusual.

Rhea Cabardo: This is truly a treasure! I love coming in to talk with Susan herself as well as the various artist that are showcased! Come in and check out this great collection and community of artists.

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.

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.

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.

Art Enables: what do users think?


Andrea MHattler: In the heart of the emerging art area of the District of Columbia in North East is this exquisite program for artists with disabilities. This is not a locale for people with disabilities to do artsy things. This is a studio for grounded, established, artists who would otherwise not have a venue to foster and enable (see what I did there?) their skills and talents. Professionally run, with sensitivity to the creative process and the needs of the artists this studio provides a welcoming, safe, well supplied, and well structured environment for artists in the District to express themselves in a 2 dimensional manner. The works, licensed and otherwise, provide income for the artists as well as the studio, as any professional studio is designed to do. The artists in residence are all recognized for their talents and ability, as well as for their potential further development within the artistic community. The amazing gallery spaces host works of the artists at Art Enables as well as their partner galleries Touchstone where all items are available for sale. This is a program and gallery are worth the trip to this section of DC!

Lauren Sauer: What a great space with a great purpose and some great pieces for sale. Show some love and support for a group that supports persons with disabilities self expression through art and is open to the community for free the second sat of every month for art workshops.

Antonio A. Camacho: Beautiful atmosphere. The artists here are truly unique.

Kenny Oliver: This place is AWESOME!!! The work they do to assist people of all abilities with art work is inspiring and uplifting. Kudos!!

Jameia Saunders: This place is full of talented artists with and without disabilities. Such a great platform full of artists! Go check out the art!

Deborah Akwei: Great organization that provides fine arts training to people with disabilities in order to help them create income and amarket for their art.

Aimee W.: A unique art space with wonderful exhibitions by artists from the DMV area. This is a definite place to visit.

Marc Ness: Fantastic spot. Good art and great mission. My late wife loved the art here, as do I.

Susan Wallington: Great location! Tabled at D.C. Zine Fest here a few weeks back and it was a lot of fun!

Rose Sokol: Excellent gallery and studio with a good mission. Great Saturday workshops.

Mariel mohey-el-dien: Amazing collection. Very eclectic collection of top quality works of art. Love to see the difference in style and subject matter between the academic and impressionist eras to the modern and contemporary art. Staff provided excellent information, comps, and biographies on the works of art as well as the artists. I have purchased multiple things from the gallery over the years and Guarisco Gallery has been loyal to me as a returning customer and has honored all their commitments and provided above and beyond services.

Feng Damon Wang: I visit galleries almost in every city I travel to. I do like the collection of this one!

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.

Katzen Arts Center at American University: what do users think?


Lenny Campello: This is a world class Museum and pretty much also the only museum in the capital area which pays any attention to regional artists, as all other DC area museums think of themselves as "national" museums, and their curators would rather take a cab to Dulles Airport for a flight to Berlin to visit an emerging artist there than a cab to Georgetown or Alexandria to visit a local artist's studio.

jen winslow: Check opening hours as they are limited. It's worth the trip to this area of DC. A wonderful art museum away from the masses.

sarah gordon: My favorite place for art openings. Space is huge and inspiring. So open. Best building on American University campus. Best place to feel art.

Cynthia Smith: The 3 Week Intensive Opera Curriculum gave Students exposure to Voice coaches, Acting Coach, Recital Coach, and so much more. I was a Volunteer there for a couple of days and was Blessed. Truly Blessed!

Connor: Typically very quiet and not crowded, it’s a nice place to visit to avoid the crowds at the Smithsonian

Michael Burke: Very nice, on the campus of American University

Alison Raffaldt: Art exhibits are free to the public. Parking costs, but is right underneath the building.

Kat: Beautiful space. Interesting shows. Free parking evenings and weekends

Timothy J. Stevenson: Good well run location for the Washington Antiques Show for many years in January.

Livio Azzoni: Small, but very interesting modern art exhibits

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.

The Phillips Collection: what do users think?


Karin E: So many wonderful art works to check in this collection. They have both temporary and permanent collections. The Picasso temporary collection is magnificent. Picasso Blue period art works are breathtaking, full of hidden layers and meanings. We took our kids with us. Both the teenager and the 8 year old son enjoyed a lot specifically the sculptures section.

Devin Pendergast: An excellent experience, highly recommended. The staff is super friendly and welcoming, and the art is incredible. Most recently there are renovations and new installations which have closed two main floors, but the rest of the collection is so worth it. They have several events each month which fill up fast, so get tickets early.

J Monique C: Lovely collection of various "classic" and contemporary work. Be sure to speak to the greeters and docents. They have such great knowledge of the pieces. I learned so much about the artwork, history, and artisans.

Walt Kosty: Visited Phillips specifically to see the exhibit “Picasso, Painting the Blue Period”, which runs through June 12th, 2022, and was quite pleased with the experience. The Museum opened in 1921, as is known as “America’s First Museum of Modern Art”, and is located in Dupont Circle, a historic DC neighborhood. The exhibit was a much a history lesson regarding Picasso’s influences for his work as it was an opportunity to experience a terrific collection of his work during this period. Although the exhibition was the draw for the visit the Museum has a wonderful collection of modern American and European art well deserving of a visit. Prepare for a lovely experience in this beautiful old building.

germaine andino: You’ll need to show proof of vaccination and wear a mask, which is a plus for some and not for others. Current collection today (3/6/2022) is a special exhibit on Picasso’s blue to pink period. Really an amazing assembly of pieces from across the artist early career.

Jean Westcott: A treasure among the mansions of Embassy Row. One of the finest collections of modern art accompanied by various special exhibits. With so many free museums in DC it has to be special as admission is $16, and it is.

吴锐恒(Ruiheng Edbalt Wu): There are always special reasons to visit a city. For me, the painting 'Le Déjeuner des canotiers' (Luncheon of the Boating Party) is in the Phillip Collection, Washington DC. The Phillip Collection is one of the earliest modern art museums in the USA. Today, there is also an exhibition of Picasso.

Raymond Ellis: I really enjoyed the Museum. All of the artwork was interesting. I especially liked the exhibits Seeing Differently..., the Jacob Lawrence exhibits, Inside Outside... and Ghosts by Marley Dawson.

Robert Williams: The Boating Party is always on display. They have several Van Goghs. Definitely worth a trip, if only for these.

Michael Lidell: The Phillips has an impressive collection of Impressionist and Modern art. Renoir's "Luncheon of the Boating Party" is one of their masterpieces, and Jacob Lawrence's "Migration Series" should not be missed.

National Museum of Asian Art: what do users think?


Credible Critic: Another beautiful museum from the Smithsonian line-up. One of our favorite. Its permanent exhibit covers many regions of the continent. Its roving exhibits are excellent with deep contents and elaborated theme. In our visit this time, we got to see the Zen exhibit and one of the complete Buddhist temple outside Tibet. Beautiful garden, nice ground. Great staff. Beautiful gift shop. One of a must visit museum in DC.

Oriane Boudinot: I love this museum! It is one of my favorites. Very simple museum with square floorplan, and the main exhibits are on the main floor. Gift shop, other areas in basement. Art focuses on different areas of Asia including Syria, Iran, India, Cambodia, China and Japan. The Peacock room is a very unique room to sit in. I love the two guardians at the end of each hall.

Muniba Khan: An amazing museum with a diverse set of pieces from across the Asian world. My favorite exhibits were probably the Safavid Textiles and Underdogs and Antiheroes. I definitely recommend visiting since there aren't many distinguished museums of Asian art in the US, plus it's **free** so you have nothing to lose by checking it out!

ThePinkfreak805: A really cool museum with some great displays. The peacock room is jaw dropping. Seriously soooo beautiful. The museum is divided into sections based on regions and its awesome to see the diversity. It never seems to be crowded here. I’d really recommend checking it out

E. Sirotta: It's one of the smaller Smithsonian museums but they had a beautiful collection of art pieces. There is also a gift shop. It wasn't very crowded at all compared to the bigger museums. Very nice. Check it out.

Kayt Maeve: I absolutely love just immersing myself in the beautiful architecture, art, history, and culture that these exhibits offer. The most recent time that I went there was a Buddhist temple room with chanting music and I fell in love. The Mind Over Matter exhibit during the cherry blossom festival was one of the coolest exhibits I've ever been to with GIANT ink paintings (see photos). If you love ANYTHING about classical Asian art and aesthetic, you must visit!

Ari Rang: Smithsonian Asian Art Museum is not that famous and not that crowded either. I lived many years in Far East and very surprised to see these excellent collections from Korea and Japan. Besides art there is a lot about history. There was also small exhibition of Korean temple architecture.

Anthony Shoraka: Asian exhibits galore. Check out the Safavid textiles on loan from the Museum of Islamic Art Doha, Qatar. A visit to the museum's gift shop is a must.

Amir .A: Incredible collection of Pre-Islamic Persia (Iran) 😍. There is also an exhibition on Safavid when you walk in, not sure if it will be permanent. Stunning. Definitely check the books at the gift store… poetry of Hafez & Rumi, most iconic poems on the topic of Love.

Marion Pellerin: Small museum. At the time I went, there were a lot of closed off areas and missing exhibits. There really wasn't much to see, but what was on display were gorgeous, irreplaceable treasures . The layout of this museum is the worst part. Very unintuitive and convoluted.

Torpedo Factory Art Center: what do users think?


MkMG09: - place was pretty cool, has lots of different art like painting's, sculptures, jewelry, and lots of different things. - place is clean and organized. - has public restrooms, that are normally clean. - parking is hit or miss in the area. - prices vary depending on the shop, artist and what it is. - everyone that works there at least the few I talked to were super friendly. - overall a cool little place to check out. I'd recommend this location.

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.

C Sands: Wonderful place to stroll around and look at amazing art. You can also chat with the artists. 3 floors of art plus the Alexandria Archaeology Museum. Worth spending time here! Also has neat history to discover, but you'll have to come to see what you will find!!

Erin Stenzel: What an awesome place with so many great artists. A lot of artists were not there in person (it was the middle of the week) but most had cards available with contact information. If you're looking for a place to soak up some beauty, it's a good one, but plan to walk away with some art!

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

American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center: what do users think?


S. Lewis: The Katzen Museum is fighting hard for the top spot as my favorite place for art in DC. Yes it’s fighting the Hirshorn, it’s fighting NGA, it’s fighting Phillips and the like! The seasonal exhibits (Spring and Fall) are always curated with the highest attention to visual stimulation, engagement, with beautiful story telling. I’m always impressed and always want to be here. One of my favorite spots in the city

Lenny Campello: Best looking DC area Museum and easily the one with the most diverse exhibitions as well as the only DC area museum to show area artists. Easy parking under the building.

George Skylark: Amazing place that has incredible connerions and represents art from around the world. Make sure you visit if you are in the area. Love the architecture of this building.

Mari Bolton: I've been here a bunch of times, three or more floors of art. Great when there's an art show opening (though people get trapped downstairs near the food and drink since you can't bring food or drink into the art space). My only suggestion would be for art opening talks to take place in an auditorium space instead of in the first floor next to the art.

Viviana Paz: Nice modern art exhibition. There's a cafeteria inside in case you want to have tea or coffee time with your friends

Camille Mosley-Pasley: In addition to curating spectacular exhibitions of Washington area artists, the display, hanging and lighting of each show is perfectly balanced. I've never entered this space and thought it was under or overhung, work was misplaced or badly lit. Everything is always exactly right.

Brian: Great space, always a good bike ride to this gallery and exhibits. The design of the building is marvelous.

Ahsun Jilani: A modern venue with a collection of classic and contemporary art from around the world. It is a prominent extension to the beautiful AU campus. The serenity makes you forget that you’re in the heart of DC. The presentation room was ultra modern.

Amina Bot: I love the new technology and enovation building, SIS, communication, katzen art center and of course the Bender library. Friendly, eco and clean environment. The one omitted star is for parking enforcement which can get hefty.

Al Rios: Great univ. My son was there for great engineering week. Kids were exposed to all faciet of engineering, took part in team competition and visited DC attractions.

Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience - Washington DC: what do users think?


Anand Kumar: My wife and I went. It was very good. Very entertaining and educational. I learned so much about the artist. There was plenty to do and see. We spent about 1. 5 hours there. You can go at your own pace. You can buy regular tickets or VIP tickets for a bit more. We bought the VIP tickets which let us see the 3D virtual glass tour for free or you could pay $10 separately. We got a VIP lanyard as well and the VIP ticket let you get either a print or a pin of your choice. We really enjoyed ourselves. I would recommend it. Also, the free parking was a huge plus no meters to feed. I also forgot to mention that you can go earlier than your scheduled time there is plenty of space to walk around and not bother others. Our time stamp was for 11am but we went in at 10:35 which was great because we got out much earlier than I expected.
Response: Thank you so much for your 5-star review - it's much appreciated!

Al Dietz: Wow, what an incredible experience!!! The show was extremely well done and visually stunning. The exhibits prior to entering the show were excellent in defining the life and art of Van Gogh. Everything was first rate. A train ride to D.C and a two stop Metro ride from Union Station to the show made it easy to attend. Planning to go again in the near future!
Response: Hey there, Al. We're truly honored by your 5-star rating for this exhibition! We have worked very hard to provide a quality event, so we're glad to know that our mission has been accomplished. We can't wait to see you again in this or any future Fever and Exhibition Hub events!

Jessica Balasso Lynch: Amazing experience! I loved how well it was set up and the whole atmosphere. My husband bought the tickets because I was the one who wanted to go, but he end up enjoying it too. I advise people to buy the VR tickets or the VIP since that's the last part of the experience and it's really nice!
Response: Hi, Jessica! We really appreciate you taking the time to review this Exhibition Hub & Fever experience. Your comments are very useful for future attendees to know what to expect during their visit. Thanks for your review. Hope to see you again soon!

Jenn Caffey: Very cool exhibits. Could have been a very chill visit if not for the crowds. However, I still enjoyed it. You could speed through in about 30 minutes or experience every exhibit fully which could take probably 1 1/2 hours.
Response: Hey! Thank you for having taken the time to write such a kind review. We're all glad that you got to be a part of this experience!

Bobbie Dickerson: Amazing art installation! Great coverage of Van Gogh's life and creativity! Definitely recomend staying in the beautiful full immersion room for at least 30 minutes to see the full experience. The add-on 3D experience was totally worth the extra $5. Parking lot right out front very convenient. Highly recommend this attraction!
Response: Thank you so much for your 5-star review - it's much appreciated!

D L Anderson: The immersion was excellent. I so appreciated learning more personally about Van Gogh and his artwork. The exhibit was beautifully done using modern technology to allow a wider audience to experience the art of this brilliant artist. My hope is that the exhibit will also help diminish the stigma that still exits around mental illness.
Response: Hello. It's an honor for us at Fever to be a part of the Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience along with our partners and, especially, you. We hope that Fever keeps providing you with more experiences like this in the future.

C. Dean: What an awesome experience! Got to know the life of the artist through his painting, the 360 digital certainly make you feel immersed in all masterpieces displayed. The Starry Night is one of my favorite pieces. Being able to create my own Van Gogh masterpiece and putting it on display was a very cool add on to the experience. Having to pay an extra 5 bucks for the VR put the icing on the cake. Organizers did a fantastic job putting this together.
Response: Hello, Dean. Thank you so much for your 5-star rating - it's much appreciated! We hope to see you again in future Fever events!

Arpan Shah: Fantastic experience to immerse in the art. Love the blend of technology with art on the large room with full wall projections of his art with a story telling automated display. It was fun to visit with the kids and even try painting our own version of the starry night as an activity! Loved it and a must visit while it lasts!
Response: Hello, Arpan. Thanks! for your lovely rating and for giving us the chance to entertain you. It has been an honor! We hope that you seek in Fever your next adventure and, hopefully, lifetime experience in a near future.

Joshua Sheffield: What an amazing experience. Very relaxing atmosphere. The other guests were pleasant allowing us to relax and enjoy the show. Seating in the immersive show was limited so we ended up sitting on the floor. Although we are not old it was not as comfortable as we would have liked.
Response: Thank you so much for your 5-star review - it's much appreciated!

Jeremy May: Did not disappoint! I took my family here and everyone loved learning about Van Gough. Also everyone loved the immersion room (where the paintings were projected 360 degrees around the room). We did this as a Mothers Day activity (on a rainy day) and it was perfect. I definitely would recommend it - especially if your an art enthusiast.
Response: Hello, Jeremy, We're extremely happy to read that so many people have participated in this Exhibition Hub & Fever experience and have left positive reviews like these! Your comments are very useful for future attendees to know what to expect during their visit. Ready for the next adventure? Can't wait to see you again!

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)
