The Sackler Gallery joins the Freer Gallery of Art to form the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art for the United States of America.
The Smithsonian Museum of America History has an impressive and eclectic range of exhibits relating to different aspects of American history. The building has been renovated in the past few years. Most of that renovation was basically a facelift, but the underlying building is what it is–a functional, but not especially pretty, exhibit space.
Washington DC has an extraordinarily large number of world-class museums and galleries, and the National Gallery of Art is among the very best. It houses one of the finest collections of paintings and sculptures in the world. On permanent display are works by Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Raphael, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Goya, Manet, Monet, Rodin, Degas, and many, many more.
