    What to Expect
    Visit: National Portrait Gallery, F Street NW Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC, DC 20560

    Join us for an unconventional tour of one of our favourite museums in Washington DC. Everyone knows American television shows, movies, music, and fashion but let’s celebrate one of the oldest, yet underappreciated, forms of American culture: art.
    Visit the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum to learn about important American artists and some of the unsung heroes in our country’s story.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Visit: Smithsonian American Art Museum, 8th and F Streets, NW, Washington DC, DC 20013

    We’re going to talk about a local janitor’s 14-year masterpiece, which was found by chance in his garage, discuss the American dream, check out the original Singer sewing machine, and learn about the power players throughout US history.
    We’ll use the prism of American art to view the unique story of this country and talk about its origins, its awkward adolescent period, and the past century where it has truly come into its own.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Visit: Washington DC Urban Adventures, Washington DC, DC 20004

    Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for more hints and tips on what else there is to see, do and eat during your stay in wonderful Washington DC.

    Duration: 2 hours

    While tough, your assessment is entirely fair. I was the manager responsible for this situation and I sincerely apologize. Our excuse doesn't matter so I won't offer one. You trusted us with your experience and we let you down. I certainly hope you'll consider having...More

    I have been to this museum once before, but I wanted to get more out of the experience. I knew that a guide would share information I would never think to find out about on my own and also expose me to works I might...More
