“Nice art - love the indoor sitting area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

This was a nice gallery with some excellent pieces. We enjoyed the layout so half way through you can rest in a nice indoor garden area.

“Furniture & statues & bronze oh my!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Impossible to take everything in the few hours we had for our visit so we chose the exhibits on the first floor which were furniture and statues and we enthralled and loved it all. Especially the marble statues that actually felt like they were moving. WE must go back

“Beautiful Impressionist Paintings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Aside from a rather overzealous docent who wanted to keep everyone 2 feet from the paintings, we had a great time. The Impressionist paintings were amazing. We also enjoyed The Dying Gaul.

“Totally Rocks!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

This museum is free (being part of the Smithsonian) and the collections are wonderful! There are many paintings that are famous - and some lesser known gems. I have been her before a couple of years ago - and can hardly wait to go back. For me, this is a "must do" in DC.
