The Renwick Gallery is a branch location of the  Smithsonian American Art Museum. 

Home to the SAAM’s collection of contemporary craft and decorative art, the Renwick is housed in a National Historic Landmark building, the first purpose-built art museum in the United States. 

The Gallery exhibits "works by artists exploring traditional and innovative approaches to making, emphasizing craft as an approach to living differently in the modern world."

The Renwick is sometimes closed for installation between special exhibitions, so it's a good idea to contact the museum before you visit.
