One of the best museums in the world; and we've been to many, in the U.S. and in Europe. They have large hanging sculptures by Calder; and amazing art throughout. The architecture inside is beautiful. When we were there, they had regular cinema-speaking engagements, as well as live piano, playing to silent films - how amazing is that! Definitely worth a visit; and check out their website for the various programs available so you get the most out of the time you are there.
This is beyond any doubt a world class experience. Take your time, maybe visit twice there is just so much to see. The classic part is by far the most impressive. The east building is mostly crap but the Picasso and a few other exhibitions are great. Do NOT miss the underground path to east building. It's an experience in itself.
Truly great museums! We first went in to the 'old' wing - classical sculptures and paintings. The sculpture galleries were very cool with a wide range of styles origins. The art did get a little stale - it wasn't as incredible as so much else we'd seen. But then we went into the recently remodeled contemporary/modern art building via underground art/tunnel. That 'new' building is superbly organized to lead you through movements. There is art from most of the 'big names' in modern art, including a nice Stella and a huge Calder that takes up the entire foyer. The roof space was a bit of a miss for me, hard to get to and I didn't connect with the exhibit there, everything else was awesome.
Amazing exhibits. One of the best experiences on my recent trip to DC. I had no idea certain pieces were here..The Thinker?!?! Gorgeous stuff, can't wait to.come again.
The new East Wing is so vastly improved I couldn't believe it. I would definately recommend starting there and then wandering over to the west wing. Be aware that all the food options close around 3 so be sure to make time to eat if you need to. Since the museum is free, you really can't ask for more. I've mostly found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpful.
