Great art museum. Very easy to navigate and the staff are quite helpful. Excellent stop on a rainy day or in the afternoon when it gets hot.

The East Building has been refurbished with many works added from the former collection of the Corcoran Gallery. I.M. Pei's original concept remains intact, offering stunning interior space for some truly magnificent art.

If you want to see famous paintings, this is your place. And even if you are looking for something different, the main exhibits change regularly. The Cezan exhibit was educational.

Incredible collections, massive museum, and something for everyone. There's modern art in a separate wing that can be hard to find but is worth it (think Rothko). Fantastic Degas. Block out several hours to go get lost there - I've gone back for several hours...More

Beautiful display of art - our favorite, of course, being the Obama's portraits. The older presidential portraits are amazing also!
