The Hishhorn Museum contains over 10,000 paintings, illustrations and sculptures donated to the United States by Joseph Hishhorn, a Latvian immigrant who made his fortune in America. The concrete and granite building that houses this vast collection is often said to look out of place in the National Mall, but in reality the design is well suited to the contemporary and modern artworks inside.
Across the street is the stunning sculpture garden, which should not be missed.
