  • This is currently my favorite D.C. museum. It is moving and educational to see the works of so many women artists. Their topics are so varied and their insight and skills are so amazing. Visiting this...  more »
  • I visited this museum with my mother and 2 sisters. It is not a big museum but has many wonderful artists works on display. It is worth the visit.  more »
  • Well maintained and interesting museum which was a treat to visit alone. You need time to read, admire, and think. Not a place to drag an uninterested husband or kids.  more »

  • This one the best curated museums I've ever been to. It's a gem.
  • This compact museum has a small but very carefully curated collection representing women artists from the 1400s to the present. Though the collection itself is small, it is highly diverse, with subjects ranging from flowers to feminism, Asian to Native American, and traditional to modern. The arrangement of these various themes in one space is quite intriguing and provides one of the few opportunities to see women artists as they were juxataposed against women artists of today. The building itself is stunning, with a fully restored entry hall and mezzanine floor, clean and modern bathrooms, and a cafe (open on the mezzanine floor M-F only). Main exhibition spaces are on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The 2nd floor houses the special exhibits and the 3rd floor houses the primary collection. The overall exhibit design and curation are both very well done. Also included at the museum is an interactive exhibit on the 4th floor of feminist writer Simone De Beauvior and the museum's special library. Special presentations and performances are held on the 5th floor.
  • Pretty interesting place, a lot of artwork. Check out the restaurant upstairs.
  • I think it is a great idea of having such beautiful building devoted to artist women. But it needs to have more works of arts ....I am happy that I visited it on a day that the admission fee was waived so that would be worth it !!!
  • A very impressive collection on display from the 17th century to present. The brochure states that the Museum has 4,700 pieces, but the size of the building definitely limits how much can be displayed. I went and saw the No Man's Land exhibition and was impressed by the artwork. The staff is friendly and I would visit this place again.
