The perfect end to our day at the museum . The food was fresh and tasty and there was a nice selection. Prices were good for what we got. Great outdoor seating!

It ranks right up there with all of the other great museums in the world. Great exhibits and a good layout. Big enough to easily observe everything in relative calm.

If in D.C. don't miss it. Truly one of the world's great collections. They stage evening concerts, too.

Never disappoints. Wandering the galleries is a great use of your time. Make it a stop if you are near the mall.

If I lived in D.C. I'd go every week and spend 30 or 60 minutes in one room at a time. It's a treasure. Do the audio tour and you'll be richly rewarded.

I love this museum so much. Unfortunately I didn't get to visit this time as I had my little dog with me. I have so many favorite paintings and always discover something new. One of the best things about this place is the cafeteria, where the food is good and reasonably priced, something not a lot of museums can say.... More

My first visit so I decided to try a free tour--wow! It was an entertaining and informative experience. Even the museum guards were knowledgeable and kind.
