I didn't have time to see it but my wife asked me to submit this review for her as it was one of her favorite spots in DC...a city full of excellent things to do and see.

Locales know the Sculpture Garden as a pleasant place to stroll or escape the hustle and bustle. You should too!

We stumbled upon this by accident as we were walking around seeing all of the sights. The silver tree was awesome!

The garden is a gorgeous place next to the main building of the National Art Museum and the exhibition of sculptures is simply beautiful and well organized in the garden. To be seen in DC.

This is an amazing area to explore and stroll through. Some are evident while others are much more abstract. On a nice day, stop by and enjoy!

We so enjoyed our walk through the sculpture garden, there are some fabulous pieces here. I wanted to see the Paris Metro, and enjoyed the rest of the garden as well. Lichtenstein's house was especially cool, photos do not do this one justice. This is...More

The garden is wheelchair accessible. The paths are fairly smooth, and should not be an issue. If I recall correctly, the cafe on the west side of the garden requires a different entrance for wheelchairs.
