Can a Modern Art Museum Feel Dated? Yep :(
Sep 2021
I love modern art and rush to the Hirschhorn when in DC. It's a must-see for whatever is on display. But I'm glad to see they are making renovations to the place. It feels a bit worn and dated. But don't let that put you off. It's a must-see.

Much of it is closed/Under Renovation
Aug 2021
The Hirshhorn looks like a very cool place - the architecture sets it apart from all the other museums on the mall. Unfortunately, its under construction right now and there's just not that much to see inside. i spent less than an hour there and saw what there was to see.

I actually enjoyed the sculpture garden outside the museum more than the museum itself.

While the museum was closed, we were able to enjoy the outdoor sculpture garden - henry moore, rodin, etc arranged nicely. Easy to navigate. Thirty minutes to enjoyit all.

Always Something Interesting to See
Nov 2020
There is always something interesting to see or see again at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden. There are many little paths to take with unexpected pieces of art to be found. It is generally a peaceful place to think and reflect.

Hirshorn Sculpture garden on the DC Mall
Mar 2020 • Couples
The sculptures are beautiful and fun. Well worth 20-30 minutes to see them. And it’s all free. A short walk from the Capitol.

A wonderful place to visit - be sure to see the sculpture garden!
Mar 2020
Very different experience from any of the other museums of the Smithsonian. I started in the glorious garden and it was spectacular .... even though it was freezing well worth it. I started on the 3rd floor and worked myself down. There was an unusual and fabulous exhibit on the meaning of art with Cate Blantchett in multiple roles. I've never seen anything like it and would highly recommend it.

Nothing great
Feb 2020 • Solo
I was bit disappointed with this place. There are some quirky sculpture but nothing extraordinary. The building is round but displays are average. Give it a miss.

VERY Disappointing Exhibits!
Jan 2020
I started my visit by going around the Building and looking at the outside exhibits. The CAR with a big brown stuff over it is interesting. The rest are boring!

Inside the Museum, I started at the Third Floor, visiting each room and hallways. There are very few exhibits that did not peak my interest. The Picket Fence Exhibit (around the walls) is colorful but some sections are peeling off!

The above is true at the Second Floor, few and amateur-looking exhibits. Overall, I finished my visit here in 10 minutes. Felt like I wasted my time here!

Pretty trippy, as modern art tends to be, but very good too
Oct 2019
As this is a Smithsonian modern art museum, most all of it is pretty trippy. But it's also pretty high quality, and well worth the visit if you take the time to immerse yourself. Another smaller museum that wasn't very crowded, so you can take your time and relax. The sculpture garden has famous artist's pieces such as the artist Rodin.
