“Houses the presidential portraits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

A very cool way to view all the presidential portraits in one place. The other portraits are interesting too - and it's a wonderful gallery.

“Special exhibits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

Went to three special exhibits: Video Games as Art -- and every kid there was in heaven!!!!; The Black List, a collection of portraits of outstanding black Americans; and a collection of vintage photos of Hollywood stars. A great diversity and wonderful way to absorb the amazing traditional and modern art in between the special exhibits. For the youngsters there, it was like hiding 'medicine' in a spoon of peanut butter. A wonderful way to introduce art to the young.

“National Portrait Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

In many ways, I liked it better than the National Gallery of Art. The portraits of the Presidents is great and well worth a look.
