Obviously this dual museum isn't as well known as some of the other Smithsonian museums, but it's definitely worth your time! It focuses on Asian/Middle Eastern cultures. I went for the Roads of Arabia exhibit, which was hands down the best museum exhibit I saw all week in DC. There were also great exhibits on Chinese and Japanese art, as well as the Peacock Room designed by James Whistler, moved there and reconstructed piece by piece. I really loved this place. It's right next to the Smithsonian Castle, but not quite as crowded as its neighbors which made for a really lovely visit.
