I stopped by the sculpture gardens two separate times. I didn't get inside the Hirshhorn Museum due to lack of time but with the gardens I got to walk around and down into. These sculptures are great. My favorite was the Drummer- rabbit.

Hans Hoffman's Oceanic was the piece we most wanted to see. So many others in the same room, Frankenthaler, Pollock. Manifesto exhibit is a must see

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.

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.

Art is weird now and the Hirshorn is full of weird things. You will have emotional responses like laughter, uncomfortable creepiness, and anger. Also a lot of “my kid could do that.” You will see somethings you like and many things you will hate. The...More
