The Hirshhorn Museum is one of the most recognizable structures on the National Mall. A large cylindrical concrete building a short walk from L'Enfant Plaza Metro station, it was built in 1961 to house the massive modern sculpture collection of uranium magnate Joseph Hirshhorn. Perched over a central fountain plaza and surrounding sculpture garden, it's as impressive a sculptural design as the works it contains. Come Fridays at 12:30 pm for free gallery talks, or take the kids to an ArtLab workshop.
