We were checking out the museums along the National Mall and my wife chose to check out the Museum of African Art. It consists of 3 floors if I remember correctly.
The space is well used and there is no shortage of beautiful works of...More
This museum, together with the Sackler Gallery, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Freer Gallery, the American Indian Museum and the Postal Museum, is, in my opinion, one of the least attended museums in Washington DC and I would guess in the USA. Generally people aim at...More
Think Smithsonian and you think crowds - vast parties of schoolchildren running round the Air & Space or Natural History buildings.
But here's a forgotten, overlooked, neglected and - as a result - wonderful alternative.
It looks like nothing from the outside, because all its...More

In DC for a 5-day visit in June 2018, I decided to revisit this museum after about 10 years. It is as charming as ever - small, well done. Two special exhibitions drew my eye: art of the Swahili cultures, and a short independent film...More
I think this is a beautiful museum, I've visted many times. Most, essentially all, of the exhibits are underground so the place is easily (and undeservedly) overlooked. The pieces are displayed with an awareness and respect that brings out the essence of the object and...More

Located behind the Smithsonian Castle is this hidden museum. Three levels below ground with some of the most stunning exhibits I have seen! Attached our only 10 of some of what I saw but add this on to your list!!
I was invited to a fundraising cocktail party here so I was limited to the access of the museum. But we were treated to a small area of exhibits. The museum is a tribe of art and history of African art.

The museum is on the National Mall. There are many hotels in Northwest DC that aren't terribly far from the Mall. I suggest you search for hotels on this site and locate them on the map in relation to the National Mall. You won't have any trouble finding one.
The other alternative is to find a hotel next to one of the Metro stops. Metro in DC is very efficient and easy to use. You will be able to travel to the National Mall easily on Metro.
