What makes this tour special

Experience the awe-inspiring grandeur and scale of America’s prestigious National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C with an expert art historian. On your private tour you will: 


The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. is one of the most important art museums in the world, with masterpieces dating from the 12th century to the present day, and welcomes over 4 million visitors per year. 

It is a hugely impressive complex, founded in 1937 by Andrew W Mellon, a wealthy philanthropist and patron of the arts. It consists of two buildings, the West and East Buildings. The neo-classical West Building was designed by John Russell Pope and is home to the earlier collections including one of the most prestigious collections of Renaissance works anywhere in the world. Enjoy hearing about the life and legend of Da Vinci, Raphael, Titian and many others as you gaze at their beautiful masterpieces. 

The East Building houses the vast collection of twentieth-century art, with pieces by Picasso, Rothko, Pollock and many legendary contributors to modern art. It also hosts contemporary exhibitions and immersive, interactive art experiences, the print and photographic collections. It was opened in 1978 and is a much more modern edifice designed by I.M Pei the Chinese-born American architect who also designed the Louvre in Paris. The tranquil sculpture garden was opened in 1999 and is a lovely way to end your guided tour.
