Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The building is very beautiful and impressing as many of the museum buildings in this city. A special attraction is the internal waterfall in the middle of the entrée. I liked that a lot, and in itself it was worth the visit to this museum. The art was impressive and had many masterpieces. You must spend at least two hours to give them full credit. This is one of the best, we have visited six, museums in this city and can be highly recommended.

    Amazing to see this site along with the Washington monument at the Centre. Our family spent a few hours walking through this park and visited areas including the Korean and Vietnam War Memorial. It was a surreal experience.

    The view never gets old and never disappoints. The most annoying part of the entire experience is actually getting the times tickets 30 days in advance. But totally worth the trouble for the view.

    Nice town with a lot of boutiques. A great whisky/bourbon/rye store.
    We walked all the way up and down and to the river to have a glas of wine

    A really nice place to go when you are in DC

  • PROS
    • Beautiful exhibits
    • Very green and verdant
    • Relaxing and refreshing
    • Bubbling water outside
    • Great and surprising location
    • Easy access to other “stuff” such as our U.S. Capitol

    CONS
    • Hot and humid inside the tropical forest

    “I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
    … because I suggested the idea to Mrs. Place and Sister Place, since they were coming with me on one of my runs through everything that there is to see and do at our National Mall.

    As for me, I split the time also viewing our nation’s Capitol Building (from as close as permitted) and discovering and exploring the James A. Garfield and Ulysses S. Grant statues- you can see my reviews and “helpful” photos of those three attractions.

    TIPS
    This place is unusual and unexpected to find here- it is definitely worth a visit, so go there.

  • PROS
    * Beautiful building
    * Unbelievably beautiful structure
    * Classic Greek/Roman Temple architecture appearance
    * Breath-taking location
    * Charming and delightful Tidal Basin area
    * Suitable honor to the Founding Fathers who was the principal writer of the Declaration of Independence and our third President
    * Amazing giant statue of the statesman
    * Beautiful view from there of the water, the Washington Monument and the MLK Memorial

    CONS
    * “Off the beaten track”
    * Parking is minimal, confusing and challenging and changing.
    * One must walk a distance to get there
    * Currently, there is construction

    “I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
    … because I am always drawn to its beauty and its grandeur. I loved walking and approaching it, seeing it closed up, ascending the steps, viewing the towering gigantic likeness statue of him in a statesman pose, and also I read the quotes on the walls of his documents

    I didn’t enjoy getting there by car and trying to park.

    TIPS
    First of all, it’s fantastic to see from afar and from close- do your best to go.

    You can park at the paddle boat launch site of the Tidal Basin and walk over a kind of foot bridge or you can park at the very end of Ohio Drive SW.

    Do not forget that it is metered parking.

    I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS REVIEW AND MY ATTACHED PHOTOS TO BE “HELPFUL.”

    Allow 2 hours to enjoy this majestic home and gardens. And be sure to take time out for a delicious lunch in their excellent restaurant.

    We stopped at the US Arboretum on our way into DC with my extended family and two nieces under the age of three. There was lots of room for the girls to run and play. The bonsai exhibit was phenomenal. The only downfall was the signage is a little bit unclear. It could’ve been difficult if we weren’t able to read a math effectively. My parents are planning to come back and spend additional time when they have the chance.

    We visited Washington DC, and checked out the Kennedy Memorial Performing Arts Center based on Trip Advisor reviews. Glad we took the advice of many on Trip Advisors to go on tour.

    Bernie, our tour guide, was fabulous, knowledgeable, and personable. We learned so much about the arts, lounges, theaters, and gifts from 60 countries in the Performing Arts Center. Lots of wonderful back stories on the place and arts. The terrace has a wonderful view of Potomac River and surrounding communities in DC and Arlington.

    When you visit, recommend parking in Kennedy Center lot if you drive. Tour information is near Parking A floor. Very friendly staff.

    At the next visit, looking forward to see one of 2,000 performances throughout the year at the Center.

    This was our first time attending the Cherry Blossom parade in DC. It is a free parade but we bought tickets to sit in the bleachers. The weather was great that day and overall was a nice parade.

    Check The Phillips Collection off the bucket list! On past visits to DC, with and without kids, we always focused on the National Mall and the Smithsonian museums. It's only been in the past few years that I've come to know about some of the hidden gems in and around our nation's capitol. The Phillips is one of them!! Duncan Phillips and his mother Eliza and then his wife Marjorie put together a fabulous art collection, housed in their home as a way to honor his father Duncan Sr. and his brother Jim. This is one fabulous house art museum (with a couple of additions through the years). For me, Renoir's The Luncheon of the Boating Party is the piece de resistance!! Add in works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Jacob Lawrence, Degas, Van Gogh, Braques, and so many other "modern" artists of the day. It is quite a collection that is a pleasure to see displayed throughout the 1897 house and the 1907 Music Room. When we visited, they were hosting the Picasso: Painting the Blue Period exhibition, which garnered much interest. Not a huge Picasso fan, but I still found the exhibition interesting and extensive. To gain entry, we had to reserve our timed tickets; special exhibits included in the ticket price. If you drive to the museum, be forewarned that parking on the street can be difficult to find, and meters are generally for only two hours.

    If you have some time spare whilst visiting DC then I would recommend a couple of hours at the harbour.

    Lovely surroundings overlooking the water, just kick back and relax with friends over a coffee or a meal.

    If you’re a plane spotter then you’ll enjoy seeing the low flying aircraft ad they come into land at Ronal Reagan airport.

    The harbour is only a short walk to/from Georgetown.

    Enjoy.

    Rory and John gave an excellent tour and kept the Segway driving inline. I even enjoyed Rory’s bad jokes.
