Freer & Sackler Art Galleries, Washington D.C.: 18 reviews and 39 photos
No matter how many times I visit this building I am always knocked out by their collections. This is Asian art...and some American pieces collected by Freer. There is a room designed and painted by Whistler, which is known as the Peacock Room. You have to see it to believe it. THe room has been built and moved twice before finding its permenant home here in DC. A harmony of blue and gold...metal leaf on leather, canvas, and wood....I guarantee you have never seen its equal.
The building is built around a central garden which is always peaceful and beautifully planted.
Be sure to see the Peacock Room Travelogue...fantastic room
