Octagon Museum, Washington D. C. Reviews - Write a Review

  • A little known historic building. Sorry I couldn't get in to look at the interior (Sunday). Just glad to get some nice photos and to be able to tell others about the part it played in American history.

  • A small but cool museum. You can finish browsing through the whole thing in 30 minutes. If you are too tired walking outside with the heat waves, visit this place as a cool break.

  • Beautiful architectural exhibit behind a refeshingly peaceful garden.

  • An interesting landmark. Great to see the many phases of construction styles too. Historical indeed.

  • A delight. Quick tour.
