About Our Museum
Recently voted “Best Place to Take an Out-of-Towner,” and one of the “Best Museums Off the Mall,” by Washington City Paper readers, the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum is the first and finest of its kind in the world. It is free and open to the public and is a great way to tour D.C. off the beaten-path. It’s one of the best spots to relax and meditate in D.C.
The Museum is located on the grounds of the U.S. National Arboretum in Northeast Washington, D.C. Supported in large part by the National Bonsai Foundation, this bonsai museum in D.C. harbors superior bonsai and related arts for the education and delight of visitors.
