  • What good that exist sites like this in the world, recognizing the art of the woman and allowing the visibility of people creative and professional

  • I visited with my wife while visiting DC. The museum is pretty but lacks material. There is only a handful of paintings and other types of pieces to see. The gift shop is a nice one however. 
  • We checked the Web site of the Museum and not reported that the third and then interesting floor was closed, so we had the ticket but then we could verify that what interested us was not open! So bad investment of time and money

  • 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.
