This is one of the top 20 highlights of a visit to Washington, D.C. This museum will just keep getting better because it has acquired the Corcoran Gallery's artwork after the Corcoran's closing. The museum's art will not make you forget the great art museums...More

We visited this museum on a Sunday morning in late October. There were no lines at all. The building is very modern and very accessible. I don't know if wheelchairs are available.
