    Best art gallery in DC, it's just shame some of the finest paintings in collection can't be photographed (for us from the other side of ocean whose memory of it will unavoidable fade with time).

    The best display of a Calder mobile i've seen in years - in a stairwell, two light sources: you get to see the shadow effects he is brilliant with & you can view it from different height hand angles!

    Located near Dupont Circle in a neighborhood, this modern art museum is an oasis away from the crowds on the Mall. You can enjoy the fine selection of art without feeling rushed.

    As I kind of expected, if you don't look like you belong they look down their nose and speak to you like you're a small child. A waste of time.
