Sure, I like the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, but - and it may be heresy to say this - it's not my favorite. I like Air and Space, but I adore the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. The old cliché is true in this case: these two-dimensional pictures simply cannot do justice to the actual sculptures. If you are in Washington, please, please take the time and make a special effort to

visit the Hirshhorn Museum

Here are some pictures from their outdoor sculpture garden. Click on a picture to see the full-size picture.
