A great way to relax and enjoy a few hrs wandering around looking at incredible art. Not crowed so it gives you a chance to take it all in.

Right along The Mall, within the vicinity of other noteworthy museums in D.C, is the National Gallery of Art. By Metrorail, get off at Archives–Navy Memorial–Penn Quarter (Green and Yellow lines) and walk towards it. Considering its wide and rich collection, entrance is unbelievably free....More

We had a blast here. Don't miss the "tunnel" between the museum sections. So cool! There is giant blue rooster on the roof. Have a sense of humor, and you will have a good time. Just Don't touch anything!

It is a beautiful building and it was busy. However, nothing like the Mona Lisa, so I was able to actually see the art and give a few personal minutes alone Monet by far is my favorite and the pieces here, so worth the visit.

America's history as told through paintings and sculptures etc. Large pieces, small pieces, pieces from private collections, national treasures, historic battle scenes. You name it, they got it. You could spend a whole day just in this one museum alone.

I prefer the traditional artists like Rembrandt and Vermeer whose incredible talent cannot be denied. Monet and Renoir are fun and interesting but whatever type of art you prefer, it is all at the National Gallery. No tickets, just come and go as you like...More
