We arrived too late to visit the Museum, but we visited the grounds directly across the Hirshhorn. There was a nice installation "the wish tree" by Yoko Ono that has visitors write down on a small tag what their "wish" is and place it gently on the tree. At the end of the exhibit - all the wishes will be... More

The park is interesting with a lot of weird sculptures to check out. I'm no artist but I just don't get some of this stuff. The kids enjoyed the wish tree and the different statues.

We stumbled on this museum on our way back to our hotel and easily killed an hour here. We really enjoyed the exhibitions and the layout and building are really beautiful. We love modern art so it was great to have a whole museum to look at and listen to our children's thoughts and opinions. Great time!

Visited last week to keep our daughter happy (studying art at uni) but I really enjoyed it too and found it quite thought provoking. My husband loved the sculpture garden too so a great place for all.

This museum is great, the garden absolutely beautiful, and it's free! What else do you need? Cool scenarios for those who love selfies, and art fans will love the exhibitions.

We didn't even get inside the Hirshhorn because we spent too much time outside in the sculpture gardens and plaza! What a fabulous display of Henry Moore, Rodin, and other sculptures. This was a highlight of our entire trip to Washington!

I've visited twice and really appreciate the rotating exhibitions. The sculpture garden is a favorite.

This is a really odd "museum". If you liked Yoko Ono's moaning and noise making in the 60's, you will love this. A woman screaming and making noise throughout the first floor. Pictures of a woman plastered in Iranian (sorry, I don't know the language- maybe Urdu) words. Picture of the same woman over and over sometimes with a gun... More

I visit this museum today and must say I was extremely disappointed with the exhibits. The museum has too much space with not enough exhibits to fill up the space. The exhibit on 8-1-2015 I did not find appealing or interesting. The building shape outside is beautiful.
