‪Smaller Smithsonian museum, but interesting pieces‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪This one of the smaller of the Smithsonian museums, and was not very crowded at all when I was there. The pieces on display are pretty interesting, with most items being sculptures or physical items, and only a few paintings. It doesn't take too long to go through, especially compared to the other museums. Really for those interested specifically in African art or wanting to check off all the museums.‬

‪This underground museum features several interesting exhibits of various aspects of African art. I especially enjoyed the Heroes exhibit, with art inspired by various African heroes.‬

‪Discover African Greatness ‬
דצמ׳ 2019
‪Not to be confused with the newer African Cultural Museum, this museum connects you to the Freer Gallery and Sackler Gallery through an underground passage. Outside is the Smithsonian Castle and gardens. All are very close and worth the investment.

If you’re cramped for time, go straight to the special exhibits. ‬

‪Great collection of African art‬
דצמ׳ 2019
‪I note that opinions are evenly divided between excellent and very good. I guess it also depends on your enthusiasm for African art. I was very impressed because I love the tribal art, have been to most countries on the continent and collect myself. It is also very well explained, and the best collections, understandably, are form West Africa, especially Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, and also Senegal and Mali.There are also frequent temporary exhibitions. There are few places that offer a better and more comprehensive collection of African art.‬

‪Quick but Worthwhile Visit, Hard to Find.‬
נוב׳ 2019
‪If you are coming from the Smithsonian station, this is hard to find. Go to the Garden behind the 'Castle" and head to Independence. Some exhibits were closed or being remodeled. So can go through quickly. But well worth the time. Was hoping to see more on African fashion. But the gift shop does an amazing job there. This is a quick visit. Then you can go to the lowest level and head to Sackler/Freer museums underground. Go past the rest rooms. It also isn't well marked. But great for a rainy day.‬

‪First visit to this museum despite being in DC numerous times. Found the museum content to be of excellent quality and well laid out. Could have spent more time here.‬

‪We were rejected last year. So, we were determined to see it and after all sorts of research and failed phone calls, we went and just went in
No problem. And, worth it all!

‪SMALL MUSEUM, BUT WITH INTERESTING EXHIBITS!‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪Located next to the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur Sackler Gallery, I visited it after touring these Galleries. Note that all its exhibits are at the Lower Levels, S1, S2, and S3. Marble staircases and elevators are available to reach these areas.

These Exhibit Areas have arts made by female artists (S1 level) and those created by male sculptors ( S2 and S3 levels). Exhibits include clothing, jewelries made of gold, masks, sculptures, etc.

There is also a video about an Irish nun/doctor who was murdered by the crowd. I don't understand why this video is included in this museum!‬

‪Incredible Selection of West African Art‬
יולי 2019
‪This is more properly titled the National Museum of West African Art as is it dominated by West African pieces.This is a quirk of the original curators spending a significant amount of their time traveling in Nigeria and the surrounding nations. We’ve previously called Ghana home and certainly have some love for the region, but there is room for the collection to grow and become more representative of the diversity of art that is happening across the continent. Still… it’s the largest collection in the world, and the alternative seems to be irrelevance so we’ll take it. Thankfully, the collection contains more than just traditional pieces (although there are plenty), and we appreciated our time wandering the museum. An especially interesting exhibit: I Am…Contemporary Women Artists of Africa, a selection of artworks chosen to reveal a more contemporary feminism that recognizes the contributions of women to the most pressing issues of their times‬
