A July 2005 trip
to Washington, D.C. by Kate Chopin
Quote: While I am certain that some people love the Freer and Sackler galleries, both rank high on my "museums to skip" list in D.C. Unless you love Asian art, I think there are more enjoyable ways to spend an afternoon than looking at Asian pottery in a basement.

In particular, I would recommend that families skip the museum - I saw few children while I toured, and I would imagine most children would hope for more interaction. Further, many of the exhibits, which are high and inset, might be difficult for young children to see.
One good thing, however, is that the museum does play some great free movies. Check out www.asia.si.edu for more information.
