The West Wing art is always a joy to see! They have changed some of the art recently, but we have to have some of that hidden art seen! You can get so close to the fabulous art, free of charge. I still gravitate to...More

Came here with my two girls. We only covered the west wing at the end of one day and they insisted on coming back to the east wing the next day. East is for modern art, they liked that better but honestly we enjoyed both....More

In my opinion it is not the Louvre or El Prado, but it is a definite stopping point when you visit the Washington, D.C area. There are paintings from all over the world on display in the many exhibit halls. Give yourself at least 3...More

Stunning in person! We joined a tour guided group and enjoyed every moment of the National Art Gallery. Many surprises to see and enjoy here, even if you don’t know a thing about art.

Always a pleasure visiting Washington and the Art museum. As always, attractions in DC are generally free and the Art Art museums cafeteria is excellent.

We booked the Saturday 2:30 Renegade tour with Brooke and Molly. These two were phenomenal and brought a level of enthusiasm unparalleled by any museum docent we’ve ever had. The insights to not only the works of art, but the stories (and salacious details) begins...More

This is a fantastic art gallery, especially the impressionists in the west building and post impressionists in the East building. This was our first time in the East building and we will come here first next time.

If you are an art lover, this is a must see stop on any visit to D.C. The collection is vast and varied and the buildings themselves are architecturally interesting. I could have spent hours in the renaissance galleries alone.

I looked at the NGA's website. They have the largest collection of Escher outside Holland, which is probably why you are interested. I couldn't check to see if all 400 works are currently "on view," but for the ones I did... More

21st January 2018. Not easy to see Vermeers in the US, so well worth a special trip to visit this exhibition!
