Amazing current art pieces spectacularly done. We only got to see the permanent collection as the other area was being prepared for a new exhibit starting in March. Be sure to read all the descriptions as they add so much to the experience.

Not the largest gallery, but filled with eye-catching pieces. Located right behind the White House, it's located in central location that makes it easy to pop in for a quick browse. I particularly liked the ghost clock, which is located on the second floor.

No there are not wheelchairs available. There is an elevator. The only thing I have a hesitation about is the entrance. I would say to contact the museum for an accessible entrance.

I don't recall seeing any wheelchairs, although that doesn't mean they aren't available. I know there is a dedicated handicap entrance.
