Galleries and exhibits in DC

I will be in DC for 5 days over Memorial Day and would love some
suggestions about exhibits and jewelry galleries. I know that the
Topkapi exhibit is there, at the Corcoran I think. BUt anything else
would be great to add to my exploration. Thanks!


There is a large Viking exhibit currently at the Smithsonian Museum
of Natural History. It is supposed to have a number of jewelry items.

Also, if you can get up to Baltimore, Memorial day weekend is the
LAST weekend for Gold of the Nomads at the Walters Art Gallery. Very
nice exhibit, and worth the trip.

Hello Shael This is not jewelry related, but when you’re in DC, DO NOT
MISS the National Building Museum. It’s one of the best kept
"secrets" there. Take the tour (45 min or so). It was open on
Memorial Day last year - that’s when I saw it and we went there first
before crowds began accumulating. Have a great time.

Judy in Kansas, where I’m about to go for a terribly sinful cinnamon
roll at the student dining center…mmmm, so good!

If you have time, come out to Shepherdstown, West Virginia and visit
my gallery. It’s only about 1 1/2 hours from DC and is quite a
charming little town.
