If you want to see famous paintings, this is your place. And even if you are looking for something different, the main exhibits change regularly. The Cezan exhibit was educational.

Incredible collections, massive museum, and something for everyone. There's modern art in a separate wing that can be hard to find but is worth it (think Rothko). Fantastic Degas. Block out several hours to go get lost there - I've gone back for several hours...More

Beautiful display of art - our favorite, of course, being the Obama's portraits. The older presidential portraits are amazing also!

Beautiful galleries, wonderful art and special exhibits everytime we visit DC! It was Easter time and the lilies surrounding the fountains were breathtaking. We especially enjoyed the Cezanne Portraits this trip.

I like coming here on my own or with others who enjoy and appreciate art. Note that there are 2 separate buildings - East and West. I have not made it to the East one yet...next trip. Love the impressionist paintings (Van Gogh, Caillebotte, Monet...)...More

This is an easy Smithsonian Museum to visit to expose your children to some beautiful art. There is no major security to get through, and it is less crowed than most of the other museums.
