    Lots of lovely, unusual and varied sculptures - very fun to walk through this place. We were here in November, 2023. It's quite close to the mall, free to walk through and has plenty of benches.
    Strongly recommended.

    What a fun food hall!! There’s so much variety to choose from, and it has such a fun atmosphere! Definitely worth a stop in if you’re in the NoMa area of DC!

    This was a fun indoor/outdoor market with everything from food vendors to artisans. We picked up supplies of bread, meats and cheese to take for a picnic. Seems like a real gem in a beautiful neighborhood.

    There are a number of shops, some below street level. The guys dishing our the product are colorful characters. Fun visit.

    It's something to do.
    It's certainly unique & colorful, however, not the most entertaining or interactive. I honestly expected it to be larger (one large room w/ digital art) maybe 5-7 other small areas with some interacting. "Beyond the light" was more "boring" knowledge based reading than digital art- to me. I personally prefer the "Otherworld" (Ohio) style. To each his own. I wouldn't personally do it again.

    Since I'm a girl who loves fashion and misses living in NYC, that was a must for me. Love walking around the high-end stores, seeing the latest in fashion, and buying a few must-pieces was fantastic.

    We visited this musuem during the January 2019 government shutdown-when the Smithsonians were closed and we didn't visit our usual haunts in DC. We were lucky-under other circumstances we would have missed this smaller, lovely museum. There was a wonderful special exhibit "Amazonagramas" by Roberto Huarcaya on the first floor and several permanent collections by 20th century artists on the upper level. We were able to leisurely and thoroughly enjoy the artists and architecture.

    I wouldn’t make an effort to return here in a hurry.

    There are a few nice stalls to visit but most of the market has cheap rip-off’s and clothes.

    Better to walk in into Georgetown to be honest

    Walked in and was greeted by the staff. There were multiple exhibits around different corners. Surprised to see so many mixed-media works.

    This is a DC institution with a huge selection of books as well as an excellent cafe serving fresh food and a variety of coffee. I could easily have spent the entire day here.

    This store, housed in an old historic home, is just a short walk from the Anacostia Community Museum. It houses art made by people from all over the world who are of African decent. The items aRe for sale and proceeds go to support women's industries in impoverished countries.

    Fab farmers market. Who says North Americans have a poor food culture - if you know where to look - not Safeway nor Albertsons - you find somewhere like this!

    Amazing fresh produce - fruit, veg, flowers, meat, fish, eggs, dairy, bakery and the rest! Wonderful to visit in October with fat luscious tomatoes, peppers bursting with colour and all the types of squash you need for Halloween!

    The Anacostia Arts Center is a community friendly with a blackbox theater, cafe, and meeting space. I recently visited for a playwright's musical showcase, and was impressed with the beautiful artwork by local artists and bright airy spaces. The shops have awesome local products, books, clothing and jewelry, and the owners are friendly and knowledgeable. Parking is available, but be sure to arrive in plenty of time to drive around to find a space. If you are planning a local arts event I would definitely recommend checking out the Anacostia Arts Center.
