Art that responds, reflects, and asks you to ask questions

The Hirshhorn is the national museum of modern and contemporary art, exploring the art and ideas of our time. We’re committed to sharing the power of art—to bring people together, to offer inspiration, to respond to history in real time—with everyone, for free.

Our Museum and Sculpture Garden is open daily (10 am–5:30 pm.)
