In a city filled with more free top-class museums than I can count on my fingers and toes the Phillips Collection is my choice for the top not free museum in Washington, DC. The collection is extensive and varied. And the fact that it isn't free keeps the number of visitors to a minimum. This gives you lots of time and space to wander the museum at your leisure, spend an extra few minutes in the Rothko room or soak up the smells in the beeswax room. Really a fantastic museum to visit for a few hours on a bright afternoon.

Modern art gallery founded in Duncan Phillips Dupont Circle Area mansion. The collection is an eclectice mix of pieces of modern art from a variety of artists and movements. I am not a huge modern art fan myself, but still enjoyed the museum. The building is very pretty as well. I wouldn't put it on the top of my list considering some of the other larger (and free) Smithsonian museums. However, if you have already checked out the Smithsonian art galleries and are a fan of Modern Art, I would recommend the Phillips Collection.

Forget the Smithsonian. The Phillips houses one of the country's largest modern art collections - including works from Klee, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Winslow Homer, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, and Vincent van Gogh. And since the collection is in private hands, it will remain unfazed even during a government shutdown. Book tickets in advance.

One of Washington D.C.'s hidden treasures! This is one of the largest private collections of Modern Art in the country. Features amazing pieces from Degas, van Gogh, Picasso and Rothko among others.
