I could sit in one room for hours! But I recommend making your way to all the exhibits. The special features are tastefully done and easily accessible for all viewers,
I love this place, the lighting, the serene backdrops so the art pops. Awesome!

I'll visit anywhere with a Monet... Impressive impressionist collection. The rest of the museum is fantastic too. I love that they have so many indoor fountains and gardens - it feels extremely peaceful inside.
I need to start coming and spending a couple of hours here on the weekends so I don't have to rush through. It makes an excellent activity even for locals.
I also like their Jazz in the Garden evenings which are held in the Sculpture Garden during summer months.

Great permanent collection in the museum and the attached garden. Often better to visit off-season and to check out temporary exhibits.

Come for the art, but linger for the inner garden. It's very peaceful and green and quiet.

National Gallery of Art is currently comprised of 2 buildings. The East building is an architectural prize and houses the modern art. The West building houses the rest of the exhibitions. If you enjoy art in any form, you'll find something at the NGA! They only display a very small percentage of the art in their collections; installations change regularly. There is a cafe, gift shop and really cool tunnel in the basement connecting the two buildings.
