“Wonderful Venue for the Arts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I recently attended a musical performance at Strathmore, and was very impressed with the Music Center. The design is beautiful and the Center has wonderful acoustics, which made for a very enjoyable evening. I've also visited the Mansion in the past to see some of the art exhibitions, and it was a visual treat. It's great that the venue is easily accessible by Metro and has ample free parking.

“Over priced art projects from Michaels”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

There were several paintings a few photographs and plenty sculptures....
I can say that I know a little about art and I understand that beauty was and is in the eye of the beholder… However! When you put the price tag of $2600 for a wire basket with silk flowers that look like they were left out in the rain for a year to be faded and weathered I start to question the taste level of people they are trying to sell to. There were also stacks of square pieces of wood. Now I can understand if these pieces were making some type of shape or giving some type of texture or color but they weren’t. They were pieces that looked more like left over scrap plywood that the creator glued together… $2300???? I would hide my wallet.

“Love the venue, not the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

WE love coming to Strathmore. All the seats are great, the sound is amazing. But they are missing out on providing a decent restaurant. There are very few places in the nearby area to eat. But the Strathmore restaurant is like eating in the airport while you are waiting for your flight. No ambiance, no privacy, loud, etc. They should consider creating a nice restaurant there. Anyway, we love the place for its music and dance.

“Spectacular concert hall in the suburbs w/ ample free parking and just 200 yards from Metro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

World class accoustics. Modern setting and beautiful woodwork. Free parking and just one block from Metro and various bus lines. My wife and I have been her at least yearly since Strathmore opened. Wish I could affore a townhouse across the street!!

“Excellent Venue”

What a wonderful place. Beautiful. Not a bad seat in the house. I've been to many of the events there and love it every time.
