Concierge at the Mandarin Oriental gave us 2 tickets to go to the museum. It was during the 1st week it was open so we were luckey to score tickets. Amazing a must see!
This museum is a great little spot, though its exhibitions rotate and at the moment, its main exhibition hall is closed for renovations, and will house many of its unseen permanent collection.

Once again the Smithsonian has a really nice small museum. The exhibits are very diverse and entertaining. This is a museum that doesn't win you over with quantity but rather with quality. We really enjoyed our visit. This also has our favorite gift shop - with lots of handmade items. Definitely worth a visit.

A lot of the exhibits are housed underground so you kind of wind your way down and through the various floors. There's a lot to see in a variety of genre's from tribal-like masks, to paintings &... 更多
This museum is great - it looks small but most of it is underground. The entry level windows and staircase are beautiful without being extravagantly showy - a very nice experience after being in the Library of Congress. There are lovely gardens adjacent. Great displays.
The collection is somewhat smaller than the african art collection I saw in New York, but still manage to capture our eyes with their unique feature of the exhibits. Worth a trip. Also the design of the building is quite cool, give out a bit of an eerie touch to the museum.
There are some more traditional African works at the museum but I think the more modern pieces are more interesting. Connected to the Sackler underground, it can be viewed in less than an hour. Not a must see, but worth visiting if time.
