The National Portrait Gallery -Washington, Dc

I haven’t shared a place to visit in DC for ages and am so excited to share one of my favorites today! The National Portrait Gallery is simply lovely. With all the different art exhibits, marble tile, and white statues I feel I could be Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice for just a moment.

The admission is free and they are open daily form 11:30am-7pm. It is located at the Gallery Place stop on the yellow, red, and green metro lines. It is just a few blocks away from City Center and China Town. The International Spy Museum is right across the street.

The courtyard is gorgeous! The perfect, quiet spot to grab lunch, work on emails or just “people watch.” It’s also lovely for photography with all the natural light coming in from the glass ceiling. There is running water on the floor where little children can splash and play. If you are ever in DC and want a quiet spot to rest, be sure to visit the Portrait Gallery.
