I took the redline subway from outside of DC to Chinatown station. From there its a short walk. Its in Chinatown where theres alot to do and eat. The Museum complex is split into two parts, the Portrait Gallery on one side and the American Art Museum on the other side. You cannot do both sides in one day, unless you want your brain to melt. The museum is free and get this, closes at 7 (amazing). Its the only free museum that closes at 7 in DC from what I can tell. The works of art there are very intriguing and some mind blowing, be sure to make it to the top and last floor where they house the American Contemporary art; Those are a sight to see. I spent 2-3hrs at the museum, was super tired after but man was it great.
