Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

Huge variety of excellent art from all types and all times. Paper routes exhibit and Julie Chen: True to Life exhibit were beautiful and interesting. Lots to linger over.

Can't recommend this museum enough. A beautiful gallery over several floors offering an array of the best women artists and photographers.

They do a free community day on the first sunday of the month so I visited. I love mixed media art work and there was tons of it in the museum. There is even have a Faith Ringgold quilt honoring Josephine Baker. As a black women I loved and appreciated the multicultural representation. My main reason for going was the Delita Martin Calling Down the Spirits exhibit. Gorgeous building and architecture as well

In a city full of (mostly) free entry museums, you light wonder whether you should pay to visit this one. The answer is yes! Purely devoted to celebrating the contributions of women in the arts, this museum offers a range of permanent and visiting exhibits and hosts a number of events. The soaring architecture and lavish interior are the perfect environment to really consider a work. This is a serious museum though, with quiet spaces given to contemplation, so in my opinion it’s not a good option for younger children. There is a small cafe open for lunch daily, but the menu is limited. With the centrally located and metro-accessible address, though, there are plenty of meal options and hotels all around.

They have an amazing collection of women artist. It is amazing to see that much art, by women, in one place. The temporary exhibits are always wonderful. Although it is not free, the cost is nominal. Make sure you go to the top floor, the library there is fantastic. This is the museum that convinced my daughter to become an art historian. Say hello to Olga, she is a charming volunteer.
