The Hirshorn is often overlooked by museum goers as they traverse the mall in search of culture. The worse for them then as the museum is often uncrowded (even at the height of the summer season) and the diverse collection is one that would appeal...More

I don't always have time for a visit to the museum, but I always make time for the Sculpture Garden. It can be viewed relatively quickly and allows for a view of large sculptures in nature.

The Hirshhon is an unusual mix of art and sculpture in the Smithsonian complex on the National Mall. Sculpture garden. Modern art surrounding building. Several displays being refurbished inside.

If I were to be honest, this was our least favorite museum in the National Mall. There were some exhibits with very powerful messages, but the experience in this location will be very subjective.

We didn’t do the museum, just the garden. The Rodin’s were fabulous as well as the wishing tree. Some odd duck things also. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The museum is just OK. Has a few very nice paintings from famous artists and some really nice pieces from not-so famous ones, but it also have several paintings and installations that classify in the “I can’t believe they call this art” category

I visited the Hirshhorn Museum for the third time earlier this year. They have about three floors of interactive art, and it's admission free. This time around, they had a gallery wall full of fingerprints from visitors. Another floor allowed visitors to put their finger...More
