Where

The Smithsonian Museums are always high on the list of must-see attractions when visiting DC. While they are all great in their own way, they can often turn into sardine cans full of tourists.

If you’re looking for a great Smithsonian museum that is rarely as crowded as those on the National Mall, a favorite is the National Portrait Gallery. In a far more relaxing atmosphere, the NPG is easily a favorite of Washington locals. It gives a unique take on American History through pictures, paintings and sculptures of America’s most prominent figures.

Racertrips Tips

  • The museum is open daily from 11:30 am to 7 pm, closed on Christmas. Admission is free.

      Relaxing take on American history

      5/ 5

      The Smithsonian Museums are always high on the list of must-see attractions when visiting DC. While they are all great in their own way, they can often turn into sardine cans full of tourists. If you’re looking for a great museum in the Smithsonian family that is rarely as crowded as those situated on the National Mall, my favorite is the National Portrait Gallery. In a far more relaxing atmosphere, the NPG, and easily the favorite of Washington locals. It gives a unique take on American History through pictures, paintings, and sculptures of America’s most prominent figures.
