  • So lovely to be submerged in art created by women, mostly of women, and for women. Attention to detail was so impressive and the building was beautiful. What a gift to the nation to have this in D.C. ...  more »
  • This is the Museum of art are in the Washington DC/New York Avenue. But discomfort does not exhibit only the work of female artists, but were also men who visit. I think it was the hotel about two hours.

  • 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.
