I was in DC accompanying my husband who was there for business. I did some sightseeing on my own in the morning and decided to take a walk down the stairs by the Museum to the gardens. I was there for over an hour -...More
The Hirshhorn is a beautiful building filled with and surrounded by modern art. The art includes huge sculptures outside (the famous giant yellow pumpkin) and every medium of art inside. The interior exhibits include sculptures (for example the giant nude angry baby man), paintings, multi-media...More
We chose to visit the Hirshorn first during our DC visit and it did not disappoint us! Some art was fascinating, other pieces disturbed us--which seemed entirely fitting. The outdoor sculptures made our jaws drop before we had even entered the building. Wonderful experience.

I really enjoyed it , besides their permanent collection ... the staff was really helpful and if you have any question they’ll gladly answer and tell you about any art piece around that museum.
Free entrance ( part of the Smithsonian)
