    So much to choose from! We were impressed with the variety of food and drink options here. Indoor and outdoor seating options, including on the roof. Hoping to go back. Highly recommend!

    Worth the visit. Variety of types of art: painting, sculpture; the fountain in the middle of the gallery; the atrium with beautiful greenery.

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

    Our group was grandparents, parents and a 7 year old. We were all interested and enjoyed our visit. Installations change every couple of months. Right now, the art is about cherry blossoms. Technology makes the art interactive which the grandson loved. There are only 3 rooms which was a little disappointing but it was an entertaining hour or so. A public parking deck is right around the corner. Because of Covid, reservations are required.

    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.

    If you like the photographer Ansel Adams, this is the place for you. It's free, it's not crowded and 75 of his original photographs, all signed, are exhibited. I enjoyed leisurely walking through and reading quotes by him on the wall.
    However the exhibit is a walkway to the staff offices. Most of the time I was walking through, someone was in the staff lunchroom beating on a block of frozen ice. It was very distracting. Other people were stomping up and down the stairs and, I don't know, it felt like the exhibit was really an afterthought to them instead of a point of honor and pride.

    This was mildly disappointing. While I’m sure it’s big for DC it was pretty small in the grand scheme of things. There were some good vendors but also a lot of junk (as to be expected). If you’re in the market for vintage cookware or posters, check it out. Otherwise, skip.

    I used to come by the Mazza Gallerie a decade ago when I was studying at American University. But I was surprise how this place felt like a ghost town on my recent visit. I was staying across the street at the Embassy Suites when I felt like going to watch a movie at the AMC Theatres on the top floor. If you're looking for a quiet spot to go window shopping or see what's around, then this is your place. As other reviews have indicated, there aren't that many stores to see here. The only positive experience I had in this building was the $6 movie ticket for the morning show. Outside the Mazza Gallerie you'll have more shopping and dining opportunities and it's conveniently next to the Friendship Heights metro station.

    We spent 3 days in Washington and every day we had breakfast at the corner store and at the same time we order a second breakfast to eat on the way as lunch. The food was very well prepared and presented, the prices are reasonable and the restaurant was always clean. The staff is very nice. For sure when we go back to Washington we are going to pass by the corner store.

    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.

    We found The fridge street art gallery in The Lonely Planet Unusual things to do in Washington DC. It said it was hard to find. We ended going on to 9th street and finding the alley from that side!! Alex Goldstein talked to us about his collection, some of which are on the walls. His father was an artist and some of his sculptures are in the gallery. Alex had been a graffiti artist in his youth. The idea of the gallery is to showcase and support graffiti artists. He was sat outside with his dog when we arrived and happily gave us a tour and the history of the gallery. The gallery is also used for social and music functions. One of my highlights in Washington DC
