Kusama Infinity Mirrors 2 If you have tickets to Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors, congratulations! You made it through the crazy-long walk-up line or the Monday noon online click-off. If you don’t have tickets (or if you don’t even know what I am talking about), check out Part 1: Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors DC with Kids: Part 1 – Getting Tickets. Here I am with our tickets for two adults and eight kids ranging from 1.5 to 9, the product of waiting in line for nearly two hours.

Infinity Mirrors Kusama-11

Before I go any further, let me remind you of my top two pieces of advice:

  1. Come with boundless patience. If you don’t like lines or if you have a specific schedule, this is not the exhibit for you. One friend referred to the exhibit as Infinity Lines. You have to know that before anything else. You will be waiting in a lot of lines for a mere 20-30 seconds in the various Infinity Rooms. Out of my roughly 1.5 hours in the exhibit, I spent 30 minutes looking at the artwork and an hour waiting in lines.
  2. Go with a buddy. I went with another mom and her kids. This allowed us to tag-team waiting in line and keeping kids entertained.

Are you still in? Great!

Building Entry
To get into the Hirshhorn with your Kusama tickets, use the special entrance near the giant pumpkin which is on the side of museum facing the Capitol.
Before you go in, consider using the outdoor bathrooms. There are bathrooms inside, but they are downstairs in the museum. Either way, stop and use the restroom before you enter the exhibit which does not allow reentry. (Note: the outdoor bathrooms are only open in the morning. When all tickets for the day are given out and the line disperses, these bathrooms close.) Read more…
