“So much art, so little time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

What can I say, I only had two hours so I got about 1 1/4 floors done. I realy enjoyed the wide variety of artwork, whether it was paintings, sculptures, etc... Amazing works of art.

“A quick look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Walking along the Mall we stopped in at the National Gallery to get warm and see a bit of art. My tween was not impressed until she recognized a Monet. We were there 20 minutes and it was amazing to see all the great pieces just on the first floor alone. Impressive.

“Impressive Art Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Wonderful collection of art covering ancient times through the early Twentieth Century. Some of those classic paintings you've seen in art books, and informative guides leading tours as well.

“Top Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This is the best place to visit in Washington, D.C. The two wings of the gallery offer a survey of art history, and rotating exhibitions offer gather pieces not seen together since their original creation. Not to be missed.
