This museum is interesting, but I wouldn’t say it is worth the visit, compared to the other museums in DC. The museum is always empty, the staff can be hit or miss and the art isn’t all that great. Sure, some of the special exhibits...More
This exhibit contains some wonderful exhibits. We spent around two hours going through the different rooms. I would also recommend that everyone glances through at the children’s room because some of the things such as different types of dolls & outfits were really neat.
This museum is well done and offers an impressive collection of historical artificats from across Africa. This is a world class museum with FREE admission as a part of the Smithsonian network.
It does take some effort to locate the entrance as it just off...More
We hadn't plan on visiting this museum but stopped off while walking from the International Spy museum to the Natural History museum. So glad we did.
Having lived in Nigeria, the subject held interest for us. It is a smaller museum but they have some...More
We enjoy this museum for its multi cultural display of the African tribes. You will view old as well as current art pieces in basketry, bronzes, wood sculptures, fabric and some contemporary works. Again this and the Smithsonian Museum offer free admission to their museums....More
I was impressed how easy it was to get what they called timed passes online. We caught an Uber...parking a little difficult. All I can say is impressive from the start to finish. Free wheel chairs if you need one. Educational for all ages. Will...More
I came here during Easter weekend with a friend from out of town and stumbled upon their new ironsmithing exhibit, which I later saw featured on NPR.
There's also an exhibit on gold jewelry which was gorgeous. It wasn't crowded and I felt like I...More
This museum which is located on the National Mall is only a few steps from the Freer /Sackler museum. So it is convenient to see both of these Smithsonian museums in the same day. There is no cost of entry and there are guided tours...More
We stumbled across this Smithsonian gallery by accident but what a find. It doesn’t look like a large building but there is stacks to see because of the underground floors.
I don't know much about African art but what I saw has made me a...More

The museum is on the National Mall. There are many hotels in Northwest DC that aren't terribly far from the Mall. I suggest you search for hotels on this site and locate them on the map in relation to the National Mall. You won't have any trouble finding one.
The other alternative is to find a hotel next to one of the Metro stops. Metro in DC is very efficient and easy to use. You will be able to travel to the National Mall easily on Metro.
