This place was amazing and a DO NOT MISS! The fact that you can get close up to paintings that date to the origins of our country is amazing. The presidential portraits area is also fantastic. It is eye opening to see that each president faced great struggles at the time but as a country we can persevere and grow. Excited to come back again!
Wonderful place to visit!! Great exhibits and tours. The staff are friendly and helpful. The cafeteria had great options and not unfairly priced for the area and quality. West side was my favorite but going over to the East was worth the effort ... fun concourse my bing sidewalk and great architecture even if you’re not into modern art.
If you really want to experience the National Gallery at its best, it's 1000% worth it to pay for a Museum Hack tour. They're led in small groups by energized and super fun tour guides, and they give you the saucy and scandalously fun stories you'd never hear elsewhere, as well as games and activities that really let you engage with the museum in a unique and fun way. It's 2 hours and spans the entire Gallery, but feels just like hanging out with a good friend for not enough time. It's a must-do for anyone remotely interested in fun or art or history or museums or DC. Do it.
Two months ago, I visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC with my fiancé. Upon walking in, I grabbed two maps of the Gallery, one map in English and the other map in Chinese. With the two maps adjacent to each other, the Chinese version repeatedly stated "请不要触摸艺术品 (please do not touch artwork)" all over the map, while the English version had "Tower 1, 2, or 3" in its place. Likewise, the Japanese and Spanish Gallery maps also have the tower number at these spots on the map. The Chinese Gallery map is the only map with the aforementioned admonishment at these locations. The other Gallery maps just have the warning on the side. As a Chinese speaker, I feel personally discriminated against. It is unacceptable to treat one ethnic group as rule breakers that need additional warnings. I submitted a comment form to the Gallery. Two months later, I received a succinct email from the Gallery stating that my statements were "not true" and that I had "misinterpreted" the Chinese Gallery map. I did not misinterpret my native tongue. I also disagree with the notion that my statements were "not true." I request a proper response from the National Gallery of Art to act and rectify the discriminatory maps.
I love that this place turns into an outdoor ice skating rink as it gets closer to winter. The costs for skate rentals and for time slots are very inexpensive and it provides great scenery. A great place for a family outing.
