"A Treasure Trove of Art" National Portrait Gallery Tip by TexasDave

National Portrait Gallery, London: 39 reviews and 55 photos


A visit to this museum is like getting an education in art. Started in the early 1800's with 3 dozen major paintings, it has grown to a gallery containing almost 70 different rooms. Highlights include many early Renaissance masterpieces, a few Da Vinci drawings, good examples of the "Dutch Masters", and don't overlook the mosaics you are walking on in the vestibules and staircase landings!

Address: Trafalgar Square
Directions: Leicester Square or Charing Cross tubes
