    Wonderful museum. There are not enough words to explain everything we saw. Washington is full of art and history and it was very important to get to know it.

    I thought that seeing works by Picasso, Monet or Rembrandt was only possible in Europe and now I realised that this is not the case. We saw world renowned works. A must see!
