    Did you know? The only Da Vinci in the Western Hemisphere, Ginevra de' Benci is also one of the artist’s early experiments with oil paint. Wrinkles indicate that he was still learning the new medium. 続きを見る

    This is the only place in the Western Hemisphere to see a Leonardo da Vinci. If that isn’t reason enough, then free admission to Western art from the middle ages thru the Impressionists ought to be.

    Excellent Renaissance, Dutch, & post-Impressionist collections. Free. Restaurant usually has a menu by a well known DC chef, inspired by a current exhibition. Free concerts at 6.30 each Sunday.

    If you enjoy light, water, or happiness, definitely walk through the underground passage to the East Building.

    Overlooked Smithsonian. Lots of rooms with great art to get lost in. Don't try to look at everything in one day, you will burn yourself out.

    Catch the film series, Le Cinéma Fantastique that captures the essence of the surrealists of the 1920s precisely. You would definitely be in for a treat. What is your inspiration?

    Exhibitions in the past have been comparable to visiting Venice or Rome itself, or at least a grand substitute. Spend a day dedicated to culuture and learning at the National Gallery of Art. 続きを見る

    Request the one hour self guide tour sheet. Pair it with the free audio tour phone to get a great overview of the museum.

    They just don't build public buildings like this anymore. The center rotunda is one of the most impressive places in DC.

    Raphael's St. George slaying the dragon is a small painting not to be missed! You can imagine the artist enjoying himself as he painted this individually sized work.

    Try the daily free tours: for those who don't know much about art, the tours provide a starting point on appreciating the art. For the pros, the discussions are definitely engaging.

    Make the transition from the classical to the modern building (East Wing) underground - you'll actually experience the amazing light work (Multiverse) of Leo Villareal

    The Cascade Cafe gives a 10% discount for Federal employees. That helps offset the high prices that all the gallery/museum cafes seem to be charging these days. The selection here is great as well.

    The columned rotunda. Enjoy the fountain and the foliage, which changes seasonally. Stressed? Take your thoughts there and empty your head, or take your notebook there and write.
