    Fascinating exhibits - in-depth scholarly work if you want it - the theater was fantastic, the beautiful reading room reminded me of the Mayo Clinic Library, and probably the most important aspect was...  more »

    The Folger is unassuming. A small lobby welcomes you in and there are no fanfares and only a teeny gift shop. Not for The Folger to brag or boast; they don't need to trap you in a commercial anteroom....  more »

    I had the best time there I have to play dress up and takes pictures total and bass my kids but it was worth it what side of the building is absolutely gorgeous the toys start at 11 but one and I believe again at 3 so next time I go I'll definitely take a shower because you're kind of limited to what you can see walking around by yourself

    Awful! Give you seats from which you hardly see the stage. I had to leave before the show, and no one offered to give me my money back.

    Definitely worth a visit, even if you are not a huge Shakespeare fan. Lots to see and learn.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
