A perfect museum, just the right size so you can see everything without running a marathon
Oct 2021
This is a beautiful little museum! And if you're tired of seeing Picassos and Renoirs, and want to see something that might actually look nice in your own home, this is the place. They show high-end, ultra cool, objects that feature stellar craftsmanship. Every object is stunning. Glass, fabric, furniture, ceramics, neon, the best of the best. I would recommend this for anybody as a tonic to the big museums, with their vast halls and endless corridors where it's easy to get lost...

A True Gem
Oct 2021
I've been to DC countless times for work and vacation. This was the first time I've visited this gallery. It's just down the street from the White House. It is small, but that is one of the best things about it. There are many great museums in DC. Sometimes the scale of them are overwhelming. This gallery gives you great exhibits, but on a scale that allows you to spent time on each item without feeling the need to rush through to see the entire thing. We were able to contemplate the art in a relaxed setting. I give this gallery extremely high marks.

Lovely exhibits and beautiful space. I wish there were more to see but also, it wasn't overwhelming so one could really enjoy and take time in observing and reading what each piece is about.

This IS My Happy Place
Jun 2021
So happy that the Renwick is once again Open! Was able to score two tickets, free tickets/timed entry. The current exhibit - Forces of Nature - was pretty awesome and inspiring especially Timothy Horn. Upstairs, Janet Echelman's fiber and lighting installation was magical.

Small but great art museum

Small museum with incredible art and a fascinating history! We loved all of the sculptures. The Museum wasn’t busy at all with the timed tickets required.

Small but awesome

I adored the Renwick Gallery. It is quite small will take you less than an hour to see it all but worth it. Lovely and unusual and fun art. Highly recommend!

Take A Break from Covid
Oct 2020 • Couples
The exhibit showing now wasn’t exactly my cup of tea, but who cares?! It was a museum, and a perfectly sized one to boot...the first museum date my wife and I have been on since Covid began. Like all the Smithsonians, it’s free. The staff are welcoming. The other visitors are obviously also thrilled to be doing something normal while also staying safe. The only drawback (now) is the museum’s site is just a block from the White House, which forces one to think about its current occupant. Nonetheless...a deliriously happy morning through early afternoon.

Lovely art in a small gallary
Sep 2020
The large piece in the main gallery is especially impressive. Only 1 floor of art which is well worth an hour or so of anyone's time. Impressive staircase entrance.
