OK, you will indeed find yourself walking in circles at the Hirshhorn; it's the only way to see the exhibits. The exhibits themselves are the thing, and you have two choices: inside or out. Each is worth an hour or two of contemplation. So dress in layers for comfort and choose where you would like to start. Inside, the Hirshhorn will guide you along simply because the building is essentially a cylinder that will steer you through itself. I recommend you walk past what you don't like or "get" and dwell on the rest as you please. Strategically placed areas have benches, chairs or lounges. Sit and relax near an exhibit you like, or sit just to recharge and reflect, then back around to the next exhibit. Outside is my favorite part if weather permits. The sculpture garden is an almost Alice-in-Wonderland mix of sculptures in a beautiful garden with many sections offering great views, wonderful pieces of sculpture and tucked-away sections ideal for photography or reflection.
