Hirshhorn Museum

The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is an art museum beside the National Mall, in Washington, D.C.. The museum was initially endowed during the 1960s with the permanent art collection of Joseph H. Hirshhorn. It was conceived as the United States' museum of contemporary and modern art and currently focuses its collection-building and exhibition-planning mainly on the post–World War II period, with particular emphasis on art made during the last 50 years.

Always such a treat to visit this treasure. Love their special exhibits and the sculpture garden. It's a pretty compact museum and easy to navigate, so you're sure to see it all in a reasonable amount of time.

The building and scenery where spectacular. And the staff seamed pleasant. The galery options though, while varied, have a particularly "modern art" feel to them. Many abstract, serial, and simplistic art pieces with a few exceptions of the truly bizarre. Honestly it just wasn't my cup of tea. If your into peculiar art it's a wonderful place to take a look at for free, but if you have more classic art tastes I'd stay away.

Great modern art museum in and of itself, but add in that it's free and it becomes can't miss! Circular layout is nice if you've only got a short time, as nothing is far from the entrance. Proximity to all the other stuff on the mall, just adds to the attractiveness as a last minute option for your day out. Sculpture garden is not very big, don't really need to reserve any time for this, just spend a few minutes on the way in or out.
