The Renwick Gallery is one of our favorite galleries in town, steps from the White House. It was open just few years ago into a gorgeous building. You can find art exhibitions from the Burning Man to beautiful modern pieces. Definitely one of my favourites art spaces in the city.

“Modern and always changing, this museum isn't always on a top 5 list of the National Mall's exhibits, but is a real cool modern gem. Look for the visiting exhibits for ideas. Come and spend an hour and then move on. No need to spend a whole day. ”
