The collection is varied and large. Pick up a guide and decide what you want to see unless you have an entire day to dedicate to the gallery.

The latest exhibit, showing the 15th century siege of two seaside Moroccan fiefdoms, featured 2 rooms of gargantuan, exquisite woven Spanish tapestries depicting aspects of the long time struggles between Iberian powers and Moorish mini-states, While planning a trip to Washington, be sure to check the websites for special exhibits at the Gallery, as well as at the American History, Library of Congress and Folger Library, National Archives if you wish to view exhibits along historical themes. They're all free, so you can even return for a second look at a quieter time if you find it too crowded. The Shopping at the Gallery is great for gifts & souvenirs too.

One of the great art galleries in the world. You can spend a full day here. Eat in the Cafeteria (a bit expensive) but allows you to rest and recharge as you see the unbelievable collection.

Okay, so I'm a sucker for art museums and probably never gave one a bad rating. I liked the paintings here and since it is connected with the portrait gallery, you are really getting two museums in one. One caution: it doesn't open till 11 AM. Don't be like me. Sleep in or plan someplace to go before it opens. (Hint: We went to Fords theater which was very close).

I love this museum with its beautiful, balanced proportions, indoor garden rooms, and of course, the rooms filled with artwork. Be sure to leave time for a visit to the excellent museum shop to purchase gifts for friends, family, or yourself. There are also two very nice restaurants and the indoor garden rooms are wonderful, quiet places to relax and take a break from wandering the galleries.
