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 building is open Wednesday–Sunday (10 am–5:30 pm), and our outdoor sculpture garden is open daily (10 am–4:30 pm). Plan your visit.
But the Hirshhorn is more than just a destination. Our conversations with today’s artists are recorded and available on our YouTube.
Events, workshops, and artist talks – in person and online.

Craving a creative break? Kids of all ages (or the kid at heart) can stay engaged with unique projects released every week.
Make art part of your routine. Sign up for one of our newsletters and follow us @hirshhorn on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
The Hirshhorn is planning two important projects: a revitalization of the Sculpture Garden and repairs to the Museum’s envelope. Each supports our mission, enhances visitor experience and resolves critical infrastructure needs.
