If you are in the area, I would recommend to stop by. It is a small gallery so only plan 30 minutes. It is all American artist featured.

We decided to visit this museum on the suggestion from friends who live in the D.C. area. Two floors of beautiful works of art from pottery to marble. Don't miss this museum!

The Smithsonian's Renwick Museum was great! It showcased interesting and innovative American artists. We found a few great pieces like the draped wooden grandfather clock and Chihuly chandelier. It also had a nice place to learn more about the gallery through interactive videos.

We visited this Gallery on the recommendation of our son who is at school in DC. Please make the effort it was so worth it. It is not overwhelming, easy to see quickly if you are limited by time.

No there are not wheelchairs available. There is an elevator. The only thing I have a hesitation about is the entrance. I would say to contact the museum for an accessible entrance.
Do you have wheelchairs for use?

I don't recall seeing any wheelchairs, although that doesn't mean they aren't available. I know there is a dedicated handicap entrance.
