I'm a wedding photographer, and I love to take clients to this beautiful garden because it's open early, and has beautiful well-kept grounds, even in the winter.

After an early morning visit to the Smithsonian Castle, I sat outside in Enid Haupt Garden enjoying this lovely site.

Consisting of a couple of hectares surrounded by several buildings, including the Smithsonian Castle and the Freer/Sackler Museum and the Museum of African Art, the garden is an attractive and pleasing oasis. Take the time to sit down and enjoy the restful atmosphere and the scent of flowers.

I stumbled upon the Enid A. Haupt Garden on my way back from the National Mall. What a delight! A beautiful setting in the spring with tulips blooming and scents of other flowers. Definitely a quiet place to visit away from the crowds.

The Enid Haupt Garden is a small strip of land between the Smithsonian Castle and the Hirshhorn. It's relaxing and quiet and probably overlooked by those in a hurry. But it's a great place to catch your breath. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There are carefully planned shade and sun beds that are the envy of this home gardener.

I felt like I was in the Rapunzel fairytale as the building looked like a tower and across it is a beautiful parterre. One should visit this garden if your looking for a short walk and afterwards sit on a bench and enjoy the view.

This is just a beautiful garden with many spectacular tulips and roses soon to bloom with lots of nooks and crannies to walk through and sit down. A lovely spot.

Like past reviews. All 37 of them people just look at the facades in DC and not delve deeper. It was pretty, well maintained and quiet in Winter. Would love to see it in full boom.
