I have seen two of the interactive exhibits at the Renwick and I am about to embark on my third. I have noticed that it is nice to go through at your own pace and everything is well put together. The building itself is historical...More
I went for the Burning Man Exhibit out of curiosity. It's a decent exhibit, if you haven't been to Burning Man. If you have been it's probably not worth a special trip. The current first floor exhibit Disrupting Craft on the other hand is worth...More
While the first floor exhibits left us feeling unimpressed, the entire upstairs was a spiritual experience we shall take with us forever. The entire room that was transformed into an intricately carved wooden temple is beyond mere words to aptly describe its significance and utter...More
We visited this gallery last July, not thinking much, until we found an exhibit about the Burning Man. This was quite amazing. There was highly creative artwork displayed everywhere. The Burning Man's Temple was amazing, all made of cut woodcut columns, ornately decorated walls, hanging...More
Visited with several friends on a Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit and the building itself. Either take the Metro or go onto Spot Hero and get a parking space in the garage diagonally across the street.
Stellar art museum with a social commentary. The temporary Burning Man exhibit on the second floor was well done, interactive and fascinating! This locale is within eyesight of the White House and other DC monuments. Great location, free—superb!

I think both days will be relatively busy. Your best bet I think will be to go early in the day when they open. And don't be afraid to jump around from piece to piece. There's no order really so if one of the 'scenes' is... More
I think both days will be relatively busy. Your best bet I think will be to go early in the day when they open. And don't be afraid to jump around from piece to piece. There's no order really so if one of the 'scenes' is crowded. Jump ahead and then go back.
It was a wonderful exhibit. Be sure to bring a phone to light the exhibits and if you need them, eyeglasses.
There's also very good docent led tours of the permanent collection on the 2nd floor. Check the Renwick's website for the times on the day you choose.

Pretty busy, but basically do-able. Newseum needs at least 6 hours (which is why you get a 2 day ticket.) Check the Renwick website - the current exhibition "Wonder" closes on May 8 and I'm not sure what will be there when you visit.
Renwick Gallery: Still worth the visit? (5 Replies)
i understand that a large part of the Wonder Exhibit is gone and they are in the process of installing something new. Is it still worth visiting this month?

I've seen the Wonder exhibition twice and I think some of the best installation pieces are still on display. Admission is free so all you are out is some time if you don't like it, but I think you will..
