Would highly recommend to visit for a great cultural experience. Thousands of paintings. Gift shop is a little pricey. If you go on a tour you will definitively want to come back the next day to see everything you missed. As yours just highlight the main painting of the room. Would recommend. Friendly staff. Not so friendly security guards at the door. Rest are decent though.

It's fun every single time. Great place to visit if you are on a trip to Washington DC. They have food and good number of restrooms inside, so no worries about it. Typically you will end up spending half of your day here to see everything here. If you are an art enthusiast then you will spend one full day here. It's not crowded any time as this place does not attract many children.

Donated by Andrew Carnegie, or so Mr. History tells us, the National Gallery is not an official Smithsonian Museum though it shares space on the National Mall. There are many great pieces here, notably Cezanne portraits, a Van Gogh self portrait, and many more. Monet, Renoir, Degas. Also beautiful sculptures and a lovely setting. Please no food or drinks. This free gallery is an excellent choice among many. One can spend an hour and barely see the big pieces. A half or full day can afford a relaxed perusal

Had two kids in tow, 4 and 9, they weren't enthusiastic about an museum where they couldn't touch anything. They both managed to find something interesting. 9 year old liked sculptures, 4 year old liked modern art that looked slot like the messes she makes in our house regularly... I will have to start appreciating her creativity more in the mess!

Beautiful art with multiple impressive masterpieces this place is a unique and impressive place. You can easily get lost and will want to have a map with you. I hope you have fun🙂. The benches are in almost every room so you can sit down. Some of the paintings are disturbing and some younger kids might not take it the right way. If you like the pop are or modern culture paintings, these are not it.
