Off the beaten path of DC museums and therefore far less crowded. We enjoyed strolling around in the rooms enjoying this collection, which includes some real gems, such as the Jacob Lawrence migration series and the Paul Klee paintings. Permanent collections free during the week.

It was worth my visit just to see the boating party painting. There was also a great exhibition of a collection of landscape paintings.
