  • This museum is a true jewel. It begins with the amazing building it is in. It was originally a Masonic Temple and it is magnificent, especially the main floor and Mezzanine area. The main collection i...  more »
  • During my ticket purchase I didn't think the visit would take more than an hour. I ended up staying for 2 hours ! The museum had beautiful and a not so small collection of art ! of many artists too.  more »
  • Surprising, refreshing, perhaps somewhat poor in the sense that there are not many paintings and works of art. But I enjoyed my visit very much.  more »

  • I was expecting a museum full of art done BY women. There is some of that, but what there is - is disappointing: not museum quality - with a handful of exceptions. Worse, the entire first 2 floors are portraits of women in the arts - not their actual works - unless they are self-portraits. And they looked like giclee's rather than actual paintings. The one bright spot was the architecture: beautiful staircase and chandeliers. We were finished with the whole museum in about 15 minutes. Definitely not worth $10 apiece.
  • 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.
  • I brought my 2 daughters and my daughter-in-law. It was VERY EMPOWERING!
  • Very nice museum highlighting women artists throughout history. Not free like the Smithsonian museums, but worth the price.
