There is too much to comment on in terms of the individual works, so will stick to my thoughts on how fortunate Americans are that this treasure is accessible as it is (like all of the other Smithsonian museums).
Saw a lot interesting and informative displays. Couldn't have found a better way of passing a few hours and getting educated at the same time. Make sure you see Dorthy' s Ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz movie.
The Presidential portraits are wonderful but there is so much more to see. Exhibitions are always changing and bringing new art to enjoy. The building architecture is wonderful, too. Have a drink or coffee in the courtyard!
After visiting the National Portrait Gallery, I visited this museum. The Kogod Couryard separates these 2 attractions. Free Entrance here! Visitors use the G Street entrance.
I had a great time admiring the various paintings, sculptures, etc on display here.

The museum has 3 floors. We started from top floor to bottom. The exhibit of American actors and famous athletes was really good. My favourite was the exhibits and photos of the American presidents. The photo of Michelle Obama was very popular.
You can take photo of everything in this gallery, but no food and drink!
Cool collection of art, but I have seen more sophisticated paintings than what I have seen at this gallery.

This museum is a couple blocks away from the National Mall and near Metro stop/ Galleries/China Town.
I visited 4:30-6:30pm. It is the only nearby museum open after 5:30 it seemed.
Excellent visit and wonderful presidential gallery. Two kids play areas are in museum as...More
Yes, if you could only visit one art museum in Washington, it should be the National Gallery of Art. And probably the second would be the Phillips Collection. I suspect this is the finest third most prominent art museum in any American city—even without considering...More

2 hours on one side (the Am Art Museum), break for lunch in the courtyard or at one of the places nearby, and then 2 hours on the other side (Nat'l. Portrait Gallery). Highly recommend going up to the top floor gallery of the side that used to the US Patent and Trademark Office. It's so quiet up there and the photographs and art are fantastic. You almost have the place to yourself, which is rare in a DC museum.

If it is the National Quilt Collection you are interested in seeing, it is part of the division of Home and Community Life's Textile Collection, and it is on display at the National Museum of American History (Constitution Ave. bet. 12-14th streets). There are a lot of Smithsonians, so sometimes hard to figure out what's where! Have a good visit!
