The NGA, which opened in 1937, is home to great art, but the building itself is also worth a look. The exterior, like many buildings in DC is classical in style with Ionic columns adorning the front. Inside are expansive hallways with arches, domed ceilings, marble floors, statues and many flowers. The lower level includes a pretty wall of cascading water as you leave the west building on your way to the east side.
