This is by far my favorite of the Smithsonian Museum's. It's away from the mall and less patronized than the others. There's always something interesting and different on display.

I love the folk art and the old models submitted with patent applications, found on the first floor. There are some amazing mouse traps there! On the third floor I like the modern art collection, which has a lot of good 20th century pieces, but is not overwhelming in size. The renovated building is lovely, the tile floors alone are worth a visit. And, of course, it's free.

Their map leads you straight to the goodies. Very funny Impressionists, nice landscapes, good Van Goghs. It's all here and the price is right.

We started in the Art of Video Games Section. After that we thought we would leave but we went around the 3rd floor. It was very cool. The exhibit with the portraits of the Presidents was very cool. The courtyard area was very relaxing. All of the sculptures and busts were very elegant. I would reccomend this museum.
