National Portrait Gallery Reviews & Ratings

  • The diverse collection spans several centuries to modern art. Even non art fans will find something interesting. The history of the pieces and links to history are amazing. Spend some time, and don’t forget it is free to get in.

  • Another gem in the long list of fabulous free entry Museums and Galleries this Capital has to offer to its residents and visitors alike. 3 floors jam packed with past and present glories of different centuries as well as local/national talent plus many more stellar distinguished characters of varied fields in the arts from further afield. However exhausted you may feel make an effort to visit this remarkable collection.

  • I went to see the portraits of President and First Lady Obama but admired many of the portraits and sculptures. We truly have a rich heritage in America. My favorite Presidential portrait was actually of George W. Bush. It was so ...HIM! Also the portrait of Bill & Melinda Gates in the Contemporary Gallery is truly amazing!!!!

  • I could easily spend the whole day here. There's so much to look at! We were in the museum for about 3 hours and got through about half of the museum. Everything is very well organized, appropriately displayed, and easy to navigate. I will definitely be back.

  • Easily one of the most underrated museums in DC. The museum is huge and there is plenty to see (uh, especially if you like portraits). Museum is busy but never too crowded, especially the top floors. The courtyard is the best hidden places in DC and (is/was) one of my favorite places to go and relax, read, or enjoy lunch.
