"National Portrait Gallery" Smithsonian Institute Museums / National Zoo Tip by seagoingJLW

by seagoingJLW

Favorite thing: The Gallery is located in the old Patent Office Building at 8th and F Streets NW. Phone: 202-357-1300.

This museum is where the arts tell the stories of important lives in our country's history, from George Washington to Marilyn Monroe. The building is a fine example of Greek Revival Aarchitecture.

At present the building is closed for renovation.l
