Re: Whistler in Watercolor at the Freer Museum (DC)
Thank you, Lavendulan. : )
Oh, how I miss the wonderful world of museums in Washington! I was so spoiled by by them, living in the immediate Maryland suburbs from the early 1950s until last year, and working right across the street from the White House . . .
Visitors from around the world are astonished to learn that unlike museums in virtually every other city here and abroad, admission to all the U.S. Government museums of Art, Science, Air and Space, etc., is entirely free. (That even includes the wonderful National Zoo!) and they are easily and inexpensively reached by subway and bus, even from the suburbs, where hotels are less expensive.
Best NOT to plan a trip to the Washington museums during major holiday weekends, and especially not during the Cherry Blossom Festival, when the city is crammed by tourists and school groups, but at any other time visits to Washington's museums are a delightful experience, affordable to all : )
(as of about a year ago, "exiled" to Pennsylvania, and oh, so homesick . . . and who wished for more than a decade that there were other members of The Wash for a "Meet" in the DC Area.)
