Visit the national gallery of art

If you live in the United States and you’ve never been to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC you should make a point of doing so. It houses over 108,000 pieces and includes a little bit of everything. Whether you seek a sculpture, paintings, pictures, or any number of other forms of artistic expression they’ll have it.
The National Gallery of Art was established in 1937 thanks to the donations of Andrew W. Mellon. He also included a large part of his art collection to get the museum started with beautiful works. Other donations followed and the collection of the National Gallery of Art now rivals some of the finest museums in the world (although it still falls short of what you can find in Europe). Even if you’re not particularly interested in art it’s worth a visit for what you can find inside and the new experience.
