  • Parts of the museum isn't curated, but the exhibits are world class. Free and spectacular. Parking is hard to come by but the metro station is near by. Plenty of food and interests in the area. A bit out of the way from other museums in the National Mall.
  • What a wonderful surprise this was... the museum rooms were grande and all the best illustrators from days gone by were displayed in a wonderful walking tour through Vernon Court...most notably was Norman Rockwell and others...Parrish, Pyle, Wyeth. It was very well done and well worth the time...add an extra star for the staff !! Sorry, no photos allowed.
