The National Gallery of Art and its gorgeous outdoor sculpture garden make for the ideal spot for an afternoon stroll. Inside the West Building, you can discover thousands of essential works, organized by period and national origin and arranged in spectacular and comprehensive galleries across two floors of exhibition space.

The sculpture garden is free for all to walk around and explore. During the warmer months, there is a large fountain in the middle to sit around and relax. If you're visiting during the winter season, there is a popular iceskating rink with skate rentals.
