“We like the East wing for the kids. The tunnel that connects the two buildings is not to be missed. Also the cafe has some of the best food of any of the museum's (but it's pricey). ”

“On the national mall, this free Modern Art museum is one of our favorites. The exhibits are intriguing and offer a respite from the historical focus of much of DC. Plus, there is a great coffee shop in the lobby so it makes for a nice break spot between museums! ”

“Finally a day without responsibilities I took the bus (16c,g or h) to the next metro station and the yellow line to DC. Got out at "Archives" and strolled down Pensylvania Avenue to the "Newseum". Took a left there and passed several DC courthouses. I found my way to the SAAS, passing the Shakepeare Theater Company and the Capital one stadium. Finally, the Smithonian American Art Museum! Portraits of important men and women shaping US-American history. Beautiful landscapes prior to industrialisation. I loved it! I'll be back for sure! Took the yellow line at the side of the museum, changed to the bus at Pentagon City Station. Grabbed a late lunch at Giants and couldn't stop myself treating me with a coconut pie from the Pie Company opposite Walter Reed bus station. Here I am, waiting for my son to come back from school - next time I'll take him!”

Museum
“While this museum isn't free it's worth a visit if you're interested in architect, design or urban living. It's also really kid friendly. The building itself is interesting and historic. If you don't want to visit the museum you can still go in and enjoy the atrium and grab a coffee at the cafe inside. In the summer they do these giant interactive installations in the atrium that are always great. ”
