  • I'm a casual art fan and enjoy art museums. I loved this museum. There was so much interesting art that really grabbed me. I went on a Sunday and there were very few people there, which added to its l...  more »
  • The museum has many different offerings from women artist all over the country. There is something for everyone's taste. If you enjoy art, then I highly suggest this stop. 
  • As avid museum goers, we were interested to come across the only museum in the world devoted exclusively to art produced by women, especially since its earliest paintings date back more than four cent...  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.
