National Gallery of Arts
tips and insights


Besides showcasing its permanent collection, the National Gallery of Arts organizes a number of interesting temporary special exhibitions, including retrospectives.

Not part of
the Smithsonian

Because of its proximity to some  of the Smithsonian museums, many visitors erroneously think that the National Gallery of Arts is part of that institute. The two are affiliated but independent of each other.


General admission is free. Extras include certain special exhibitions and the rental of the audio tour  (which I recommend to first-time visitors).

Visitor count

The National Gallery of Art attracts over six millions visitors per year.
