  • Close by the spy museum I've passed by it many times but decided to go in the other day because of a "Border Crossings" exhibit. It was very interesting sculpture exhibit inspired by a visit to the U....  more »
  • The Museum in him even is very beautiful! Really I have love the marble on the ramp leading to the restaurant and the mezzanine effect or one dominates the view from the top! Otherwise the exhibition depend on periods, I was able to admire the office of Simone de Beauvoir (mess), beautiful representation of women in its glory.. .l elegance... Sexuality! Yes, this museum is a must see #enjoy!

  • This is a must-stop whenever I'm in DC. Women artists from the 1600s to the present--not your same-old same old. Famous famous paintings you didn't realize were here, Kahlo, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Kra...  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.
