  • Absolutely beautiful museum. We went for the "She who tells a story" exhibit which was amazing. The staff is very friendly. The exhibits are very well done. This museum isn't free and is a little bit off the National Mall but very much worth the short walk and $10 entry.
  • This is a gorgeous building with a nice collection of art by women. They were setting up for a private event when I visited, so they didn't charge me admission. That's good, because the setting up of tables, etc was a distraction. Otherwise, it's a good size museum if you have an hour or two. There's also a nice gift shop, of course.
  • Very nice museum highlighting women artists throughout history. Not free like the Smithsonian museums, but worth the price.
  • Beautiful place I wish there was more to see but overall great, waiting for the new exhibit and will definitely be coming back! I didn't pay any entry fee when I went in, the ladies at the front desk just handed me a brochure and said to enjoy the museum.
  • A great museum with some wonderful art. Well worth a visit.
