Unique Museums to Get Lost In

Unsure of how and where to procrastinate all of your weekend assignments away? Getting lost among unique artifacts, priceless paintings and hidden doors is the most educational way to procrastinate.  You just may not want to leave……

  1.  The O Street Mansion o st
    Get seriously lost in the five adjoining mansions. Wander through a log cabin, kitchens, and glass bathrooms. Everything in the mansion is up for grabs and for sale. An added bonus are the 70 secret doors hidden behind the walls…you never know what to expect.
  2.  The Renwick

    Be amazed at index cards that form mountains, strings that make a rainbow,   and insect covered walls. You’re Instagram followers will be seriously impressed.
  3.  The Phillips

    View the boating party and the Rothko room while wandering through an old mansion. For an added bonus, procrastinate even more with a warm cup of coffee and piece of pie in Tryst.
  4. National Museum of the American Indian nat mu.png
    The building is not the only unique aspect of this museum. Explore the wondrous world of Indian art. They even have some interactive exhibits for all that extra time on your hands! If you are feeling particularly  adventurous (and hungry) try the Misitam Native Food Café. They have indigenous food from the Western Hemisphere that are cooked with cooking techniques from the region.
  5. The Hirshhorn

    Be amazed by the Hirshhorn’s unique architecture and captivating collection. Don’t miss Barbara Kruger’s instillation downstairs (it may make you a bit dizzy!)
