Located in the National Arboretum (which is a beautiful destination itself), the Bonsai and Penjing Museum contains a fascinating collection of trees in miniature. The variety and skill on display is amazing!

NATIONAL BONSAI AND PENJING MUSEUM: Yeah, this is exactly what you think it is: a big museum full of 150 of the sickest freaking bonsai trees you will ever see. (Penjing is a similar art that predated bonsai.) It’s all ensconced in pagodas, water features, beautiful Chinese architecture and several non-bonsai plantings that are pretty nice in their own right.

The National Bonsai and Penjing Museum is located at the National Arboretum, which has one entrance at 3501 New York Avenue NE, and the other at 24th & R Streets NE.
