Beautiful art with multiple impressive masterpieces this place is a unique and impressive place. You can easily get lost and will want to have a map with you. I hope you have fun🙂. The benches are in almost every room so you can sit down. Some of the paintings are disturbing and some younger kids might not take it the right way. If you like the pop are or modern culture paintings, these are not it.

The museum is phenomenal. Amazing, well presented collection. People who work at the museum are super knowledgeable and are very helpful with questions. However the design of the building map is the worst. I was lost on the ground floor, trying to find Renaissance section, when Forrest, the gentleman who works on the ground floor of the main building, gave me the map annotated with his notes and highlights. Whoever is responsible for that map design should include his notes there, as they were hugely helpful to navigate the galleries. I spent 5 hours in the museum and it was the best experience ever. Without annotations on the map, it wouldn't be the same.

My favorite place. The one place I'm sure to go when in DC. Exceptional special exhibits to complement the outstanding permanent collection. What an amazing gift to the country. Good website, too. Helpful volunteers. You can get turned around and lost, but that may not be a bad thing. Good for a quick visit or for hours, even days.

An amazing collection of art! And beautiful architecture. And its free! You can go look at a Monet everyday for free. I love art and brought my kids here when they were around 10. They still remember it. I go whenever I can. There is a great range of art classic to contemporary.

This and the Met are the two best art museums in the country. The buildings and layout are gorgeous too. What's more, it's free! Well, unless you're a U.S. taxpayer, but then seldom are my substantial tax dollars put to better use. Enjoy! And below are a couple of many beautiful Titian's that caught my eye.
